The European Sport NGO (ENGSO)

ENGSO is the leading voice for voluntary-based grassroots sport in Europe.

We create between the policy makers and the voluntary-based sport in Europe. ENGSO advocates for grassroots sport within European sports policy, raises awareness on the societal role of sport, and fights for equal opportunities for all Europeans to participate in sport in different roles and at different levels. At the same time ENGSO shares knowledge and experience on European sport policy to its members and partners. 

ENGSO’s members are national and European sport umbrella organisations (National Confederations of Sport, National Olympic Committees, European Sport Federations and European organisations related to sport).
