The Public Investment Bank (BPI), with very many clubs of team sports of football, basketball through the sports of ice hockey, and the teachings revealed by the crisis of the coronavirus are very clear to its executive director Patrice Bégay : “there is a new system of governance to put in place, it is enough to see how this health crisis disrupts the entire sports sector”.
“The general public and consumers now expect the organisations that they are no longer only focused on the search for profit, but also that they are committed and contributes to the improvement of society,”says the executive director of the BPI.
“Two worlds” to reconnect
During the whole period of confinement, he has conducted more than 200 interviews with the different actors of sport. “I think that today we can’t have two worlds, considers Patrice Bégay. The one who speaks to law tv transfer, ticketing, sponsoring and merchandising in big money constantly, and the non-profit world, these young people who are full of hope, schools, sports educators, supporters, who are full of joy.”

A better connection between the amateur sport and professional sport, this is one of the many lines of work for more balance in the company after that. “The commitment of associations for me that is the key, ahead of-t-he. In a sport and in a changing world it is necessary to innovate, and therefore, a reopening, for example, the rights television for the amateur sport through the tax Buffet, can be in the déplafonnant. But also, it is necessary to refocus the sport on its fundamentals, the training to the home education create calendars eco-friendly with more quality and less quantity.”
“It is also necessary to empower the structures of sport in the management of their facilities. I take an example in a club resident will be able to organize a seminar or event to develop its own own resources”, explains Patrice Bégay, which appeals to the sacred union between all the components in order to build a sustainable model and healthier for all French sport.
