Plan de relance post-COVID: Ministry of Sport measures based on LUNEX University study

COVID-19 harshly impacted the sport industry worldwide, including in Luxembourg. The Ministry of Sport just communicated a stimulus plan (“Plan de Relance 2.0”) to tackle the issues caused by the pandemic.

These new supporting measures of the “Plan de Relance 2.0” result from the conclusions of a 7-month study carried out by LUNEX University on the impact of COVID-19 on the sport sector in Luxembourg, conducted by Prof. Mathieu Winand, Head of our Sport Management Department.

Among these measures: financial aids to sport clubs and for their participation to European competitions, financial incentives to Luxembourgish families registering their children to a sport activity, support for the promotion of sports, participation in the costs of digital-related training for sport clubs and federations, participation in the financing of outdoor sport infrastructures, supporting volunteers.
