Subsidies to clubs

How to obtain a subsidy for your club?

The general framework of support for sport advocates the promotion of sporting diversity, support for young talent, sport for all (young people, the elderly, gender diversity, cultural diversity, people with disabilities, …).

The subsidies awarded in this framework must relate to the support and/or promotion of sporting activities taking place on the territory of the City of Brussels. They must make it possible to allocate financial and/or logistical resources to clubs, bodies and associations which, through sporting activities, meet the objectives of diversity of any kind.


Applicants must be non-profit legal entities (with the exception of commercial companies) having their principal activities or head office within the territory of the City of Brussels. The Executive Board can accept, on an exceptional basis, requests from individuals whose home or principal place of activity is also situated within the territory of the City of Brussels.
