  Sports Subsidy Scheme

The department administers a Subsidy Scheme to help sports associations organise events, training programmes and competitions to foster the Sport-for-All concept and to provide enjoyment for spectators. In 2002, the Department spent $40 million subsidising 6,217 sports programmes attracting more than 590,000 participants. Some of the most popular events included the Youth Football Scheme, New Generation Table-Tennis Training Courses, Youth Windsurfing Promotion Scheme, and Youth Wushu Training Scheme 2002/2003.

Through the scheme, the department also subsidised National Sports Associations to organise large-scale competitions such as the Hong Kong Marathon 2002, the 2002 FIVB World Grand Prix, the Hong Kong Ladies Challenge, the 4th Asia Pacific Water Polo Invitation Tournament and the 4th HKSAR International Handball Invitation Tournament. These major international events reinforced Hong Kong's status as one of the region's leading centres for sports.
