Proud presenter of 20X20

20×20 is about creating a cultural shift in our perception of girls and women in sport. By increasing visibility of women’s sport it will become a greater part of who we are and what we follow.

Our Vision

Our vision is to provide a dynamic and effective voice for Irish sport, promoting the value of sport to Ireland while providing outstanding representation and services to members.

Sport Matters

As governing bodies, our members’ priorities lie with their sport. Therefore, our job is to communicate their views regarding the benefits of sport in areas such as personal health/wellbeing, the economy and society as a whole.

The Federation of Irish Sport is the representative organisation for the National Governing Bodies of Sport (NGBs) and Local Sports Partnerships (LSPs) in Ireland. Our membership consists of over 100 NGBs and LSPs from every corner of the country.
