Six of the country’s biggest sports bodies reinvested £162.7m from broadcast revenues into the long-term development of sport in the last year.

This represents a 15% increase in the level of reinvestment from the previous 12 months.

The commitment forms part of the Voluntary Code of Conduct on the Broadcasting of Major Sporting Events, which is administered and supported by the Sport and Recreation Alliance.

This Code requires signatories to put a minimum of 30% of net broadcasting revenues back into their respective sports and to make their events available to free-to-air broadcasters in live, recorded or highlights form so that they can be viewed by the vast majority of the population.
