The Sports Governance Observer (SGO) is a new benchmarking tool that enables national and international sports leaders to improve the governance of their federation.The Sports Governance Observer focuses on four key areas of governance: transparency & public communication, democratic processes, checks & balances and solidarity. It is developed in cooperation with leading experts from 6 European universities and aimed at bringing practical change in the everyday running of sport’s organisations.
