Sports and Leisure
What we do
The UIA Sports & Leisure Work Programme promotes quality sport and Olympic facilities at an international level, through the collective expertise of its members. This UIA Programme is implicated in decision-making processes for, amongst others, the International Olympic Committee, the International Paralympic Committee, FIFA, IAAF, FINA, and UCI
The Programme also advises developing countries on the socio-economical potential of competitive sporting facilities; supports local and national policy-makers in developing attractive, functional and sustainable facilities; and furthers international exchanges of information and cooperation in the field of sport and leisure facilities.

Research visits – Our members visit pilot complexes in various countries developing new approaches to elite sport architecture.
Events – The Programme organises informative seminars and conferences in collaboration with partner organisations.
