Badminton Ireland welcomes Governments increased investment in sport

Badminton Ireland was delighted to be one of four Sporting bodies, along with the Federation of Irish Sport,  selected to attend a meeting of the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Sport. The meeting, in advance of the recent budget announcement, allowed sporting bodies to highlight the impact of COVID 19 restrictions on the Sports Sector. The limits have been devastating for Badminton clubs across the county, including significant financial losses, cancellation of events, and loss of training facilities.

The Federation of Irish Sport’s full budget submission can be found at https://www.irishsport.ie/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Pre-Budget-Submission-2021.pdf

On Tuesday, October 13th, the government published and announced the budget for 2021, and Badminton Ireland welcomes the Government announcement of a €36m increase for our sport sector and physical activities through 2021.

Regards

David McGill

Chief Executive Officer
