Sport initiatives are aimed at supporting and complementing Member States' actions to address issues such as the facilitation of citizens' participation in sport and physical activity, availability of sport at all levels of education, the fight against doping, violence, discrimination, fraud and match-fixing, the availability of sport for people with disabilities, gender equality in sport, respect for principles of good governance, stable funding, and the production of comparable data on the sport sector as a basis for policy-making.

EU action in sport also contributes to the overall goals of the Europe 2020 Strategy by improving employability and productivity, notably through actions promoting health-enhancing physical activity, social inclusion in and through sport, and education and training.
