About us

We are a sports governance company, legally constituted in Colombia to produce a positive change in the governance of sport.

We promote better governance in sports organizations with through Education, Implementation and Assessment tools.

Our history

Transparency in sports arises from the need of running the voluntary sports organizations in a professional way in Colombia and Latin America.

There is a gap between the public and private administration of sport.

We believe that volunteer sports leaders need professional and independent assistance to produce a positive change in sports management.

What does it mean Transparency in Sport?

Transparency refers to the "degree of openness in the transmission of information" (Ball, 2009).

Transparency allows external actors to supervise the functioning of an organization and, therefore, reduce the likelihood of opportunistic behavior. The control procedures are fundamental to avoid the concentration of power and ensure that decision-making is solid, independent and free of undue influence.

We believe in a decentralized Sports System, guided by the decision-making based on evidence, in the strategic management of human resources and the participation of multiple stakeholders in the national and subnational sports administration.

Our team

We work in a network adding people and organizations interested in the good governance of sport.
