The new EU competence on sport included in Article 165 TFEU has triggered high expectations from Member State Governments, the sport movement and other stakeholders. The role of the European Commission is to develop concrete policy options in view of these expectations. In order to obtain input regarding strategic choices for the implementation of the new EU competence in the field of sport, the Commission is carrying out a broad consultation process. In addition to consultations with institutional stakeholders and the general public, Commissioner Vassiliou wished to seek also the views of a number of independent experts with proven experience in the area of sport and EU integration. A Group of Independent Sport Experts was thus set up in order to provide independent added value to the overall consultation process. The attached Report summarises the debates in the Group and its conclusions and recommendations.
