Sport: from the 2 million Region to amateur realities

The procedures that led to the allocation of the 2 million euros of support contributions for the ordinary activities of 2021 of the regional commissions and delegations and the Lombard amateur sports associations and clubs have been concluded. “These are non-refundable sums – specifies Antonio Rossi, Regional Under-Secretary for Sports, 2026 Olympics and major events – which contribute, sometimes decisively, to covering the management costs of many realities which, with their sporting and social commitment , are the basis of the many sporting successes achieved in recent years by Lombard athletes and teams”.

“The 2021 call – underlines the multiple Olympic champion – has been a real success, thanks also to the innovations that have facilitated and accelerated the submission of the candidacy. I am also happy that we have managed to shorten the deadlines for the allocation of funds and publication of the lists. The sums provided, in fact, can be disbursed in a single payment from the end of May to the beginning of July”.
