Tallinn supports 31 local sports projects this autumn-winter season
This year, in the last round of non-profit sports grants, Tallinn will allocate just over 31,000 euros to 31 local sports projects.
According to Deputy Mayor Tiit Terik, one of the city's priorities is to support various sports events taking place in Tallinn. “As Tallinn will bear the title of European Capital of Sport in 2025, it's crucial that sports events in the city are diverse and accessible to both athletes and spectators. Sports events not only foster a sense of unity but also promote healthy lifestyles. As a result, they have a positive impact on the wider community," Terik commented.
The local sports project grant is aimed at year-round local tournaments and competitions, offering valuable competition experience to sports clubs and enthusiasts. Support is given to projects that take place in Tallinn and in which members or teams of at least three different sports clubs participate.
There are a total of four application rounds for local sports projects each year. Among those supported in this year's final round were the non-profit association Uju Talvel's winter swimming competitions "Iceswim" (in Nõmme, Harku, and Pirita), the Estonian Football Association's year-end mini-football tournament, FCF Tallinn Football School's "Flora Nike Cup 2023" project, the beach volleyball Beach44 cup series organized by Beach44 OÜ, the Tallinn swimming competition organized by Kalev Swimming School, the figure skating competition "Gliss Extra 2023" organized by Skating Club Gliss, and many others. The next application rounds will take place in 2024.
