New European Parliament Report on Sports Policy Highlights the Contribution of Lotteries to Grassroots Sport EL President Hansjörg Höltkemeier notes: “We are pleased that once again the significance of the lotteries for grassroots sport has been recognised and applauded by the EU institutions. It is vital that this sustainable contribution is further safeguarded. It is also very positive that the report recognises the significance of the Council of Europe Convention which is definitely the most elaborate tool against match-fixing. We therefore fully support the MEPs in their call for a timely full implementation and ratification of the Convention”.
