SIGA heads launch of Sport Transparency Index to rank clubs, leagues and governing bodies

December 12 – The Sport Integrity Global Alliance (SIGA), has announced the launch of a Sports Transparencey Index which will rank and compare base transparency levels between clubs, leagues, national associations and governing bodies.

The announcement was made by SIGA’s Global CEO, Emanuel Macedo de Medeiros, at the end of SIGA’s International Anti-corruption Week.

“This is a critical milestone, not just for SIGA and our global community, but, equally, for European Sport and the wider industry,” said de Medeiros.

“The purpose of the Sport Transparency Index is to turn the lights on for Sport Integrity and Transparency, and that is precisely what we will do.”

Funded by the European Commission, through the Erasmus+ programme, SIGA will lead a collaboration of 15 organisations from over 10 European nations in this 30-month project, which will begin in 2023.

SIGA said the project “will create the mechanism to evaluate European Sport Stakeholders, including Clubs, Leagues, National Associations and International Governing Bodies against a robust set of Universal Transparency Indicators.

“The ambitious project will map the European Sport Transparency landscape and deliver both the mechanism to evaluate levels of transparency of good governance and the means for the Sport industry to enhance the way it operates. The deliverables include, amongst others, a publicly available Sport Transparency Index, a range of Digital TrainingPackages to enable knowledge exchange and a set of Policy Recommendations that will combine to facilitate greater Integrity throughout European Sport.”
