Glasgow is honoured to be the first city to be named the European Capital of Sport for the second time in 2023. Sport is an integral part of life in Glasgow, from community clubs and volunteers to our world class facilities and the hosting of international events.
Using sport to improve the health and wellbeing of Glasgow continues to be a key priority for the city. The importance of community-based activities has been highlighted in recent years, with the opportunity for people to connect and socialise as well as improve physical and mental health increasing understood.
Through the European Capital of Sport 2023 Fund we want to support communities across Glasgow to celebrate sport and increase the opportunities for people to enjoy the benefits of taking part in sport and physical activity, regardless of background or ability while celebrating the role of sport in local communities across the city.
The fund has 2 strands to support community organisations:
- The Celebrate strand will support communities to come together to find out more about opportunities to take part in sport and physical activity in their local area through community events and campaigns.
- The Innovate strand will support organisations to create exciting programmes and activities for new audiences into their communities, breaking down the barriers to participation in sport and physical activity, particularly for groups who are underrepresented.
Organisations can apply for £750 to support projects between 1st July - 31st December 2023. Activities must support local people to get active through sport and physical activity.
