Cologne. One of the most significant issues of our time is sustainability and, connected to that, sustainable behavior within our society. This awareness has now reached almost all areas of life and naturally affects sports and its participants. Sports For Future and the voting platform FanQ are launching a major survey today in both professional and amateur sports.

"Sport plays a crucial role in our society and is therefore an important actor as a trendsetter and role model for sustainable development in our country," says Stefan Wagner, 1st Chairman of Sports For Future. But how do fans and athletes feel about this challenge? What are the expectations of the clubs? And are there differences between actively engaged sports enthusiasts and more passive sports fans? "This is where the extensive study comes in and aims to collect robust and groundbreaking results."

Participation in the survey is possible here.

Furthermore, sports organizations are invited to participate, promote the engagement of their members, and share the survey within their community. FanQ founder Joachim Lammert adds: "Our invitation to this extends to all sports organizations in Germany, from major associations to small local clubs and other forms of sports organizations. Sports For Future and FanQ support sports organizations in their commitment to sustainability and provide a free individual evaluation of the current status and improvement potential of each sports organization—with at least 200 survey participants."

Following the survey, a detailed analysis of the results will be carried out, providing a basis for decision-making for stakeholders in sports. The study starts with numerous network partners: Unsere Kurve e.V., FC PlayFair e.V., KOS Koordinationsstelle Fanprojekte, Stadionwelt, Sportplatzwelt, 90Plus, Freiburger Kreis e.V., as well as several blogs.
