The European Parliament has published its final text on “an integrated approach to Sport Policy: good governance, accessibility and integrity” that was adopted in Parliament on 2nd February 2017.
In relation to News Access and Rights, the text stresses that:
“Sports bodies should ensure necessary access and news-gathering opportunities at all sport events for independent news media in order to allow them to fulfil their role as important and critical observers of sport events and of the administration of sports.”
The publication of this text confirms the success of the NMC’s early multi-point efforts throughout 2017 in order to secure the political and institutional recognition of the important role of the Independent news media in the context of sport and sport administration.
