Supporting and promoting international sport worldwide

The week in review

4th to 10th January

Happy new year and welcome back as we do our best to put a difficult 2020 behind us and look forward to a positive change in 2021. We have transitioned from the old to the new almost without noticing. For many nations still struggling with further outbreaks of the virus, it has become even tougher with the advent of greater restrictions. Yet, in other parts of the world, life is in motion with little of the same concerns. For sports organisations, as with most industries, the hope is of course that solutions will be found sooner than later. For example, the FIA Formula E World Championship was meant to open the season in Santiago on 16th and 17th January, but the date has now already been postponed to later in the year. Their season will open in February in Saudi Arabia instead. It is a scenario that will play itself out for many sports governing bodies wishing to begin their revised season in January. For several a repeat of 2020 will simply not be sustainable. The Alliance of Independent Recognised Members of Sport (AIMS) looks at specific development and support of sport and athletes around the world. The role of the organisation has become even more important than ever before, with development almost by now taking a back foot to sustainability. AIMS is recognised by the Olympic movement. There is no doubt that the new year will present incredible challenges for the sports industry and as a small organisation ourselves, we want to do our part in support where we can. 

Until next time, have a great sporting week!
