SIGGS 3.0 will create an updated version of the self-evaluation tool on the implementation of good governance in sport both in terms of contents as well as in terms of software and design to increase its features and boost user-experience. Existing contents will be updated to state-of-the-art knowledge of 2024 and whilst also adding new principles and topics related to good governance. SIGGS 3.0 will guide European NOCs, IFs, EFs and NFs in self-assessing their current good governance principles and benchmark their current governance standards against other sports organisations in Europe whilst providing up to date content and user-experience.


SIGGS 3.0 aims to offer support to sports organisations to enhance their governance by providing practical guidance on how to implement the principles of good governance. The concept of good governance is constantly evolving and SIGGS 3.0 aspires to live up to the changing environment and expectations towards good governance in sport, by supplying up-to-date content and concrete support to a wider range of sports organisations.

Challenges addressed

SIGGS 3.0 is recognising the key responsibility of sports organisations to adhere to good governance principles in ensuring a well-functioning, effectively managed and ethical organisation to their athletes, member organisations and other stakeholders. Moreover, it recognises that there is increasing pressure on sports organisations from public authorities, sponsors and relevant stakeholders, who are increasingly linking good governance as a prerequisite condition for the recognition of the autonomy of sport and public subsidies.
