13.03.2018

In the wake of the concretization of the legislation on sports and financing of sports federations, athletes and trainers, Minister of Culture, Youth and Sports, Kujtim Gashi, has today signed two decisions.

Through the first decision it has been assigned the financial value of points for Collective and Individual Sports. The evaluation of points for Collective and Individual Sports is done in four groups, A, B, C and D.

Group A is divided into: Federations that deal with Collective Sports and have the value of the point in the amount of 3250 Euros, and the Federations that deal with Individual Sports and have the value of the point in the amount of 1650 Euros. For group B the value of the point is 1500 Euros, for group C the value of the point is 1100 Euros and for the group D the value of the point is 800 Euros.

Meanwhile, with the other decision is assigned the financial value of points for Athletes and Coaches. For athletes the value of the point is in the amount of 120 Euros which is the same amount for the coaches, too.

The Sports Department will be obliged to implement both decisions in relation to the allocation of financial support to the sports federations in Kosovo.

Minister Gashi said that the decisions he has signed for the assignment of financial values can be considered as a kind of formula for how the sports federations in our country will be supported.

"With the signed decisions it is laid the basis of how and how much will be financed sports federations by the state in the Republic of Kosovo. I believe that the categorization and the determination of the financial value for the evaluation of a point will be a motivation for the federations to work even more in holding competitions, to focus on quality growth and massivization", said among other things the minister.

"The mandate and responsibility we have taken to lead the Ministry of Sport, with the concretization of the issue of sponsorship and categorization of sports and athletes and coaches, I believe it is a good start because it has been estimated that greater efficiency will be created in sports management in our country", said Minister Gashi, pointing out that the signed decisions are also a kind of gratitude for those who work and engage in achieving results in sports and representing and promoting Kosovo in the international arena as well.
