Strong finances key to SportAccord future – Vizer

Email    Print Friendly and PDF

Presidential candidate Marius Vizer has promised a secure financial future and an increased number of revenue streams for SportAccord and its members should he be elected at the end of the month.

 Vizer, who is the International Judo Federation president, is standing against International Rugby Board president Bernard Lapasset to replace Hein Verbruggen, the former president of the International Cycling Union (UCI), who has held the position since 2004.

Vizer’s bid is centred around the proposed United World Championships – a quadrennial event that brings together the world championships of both Olympic and non-Olympic sports in one country – that he says will generate additional revenues for national federations, continental unions as well as international federations.
 
Insisting himself and Lapasset have two “different approaches and visions,” he says it is imperative SportAccord members vote for the candidate “that can generate added value for our organisations on all plans.”
 
“SportAccord’s destiny depends…on the ambition to generate sufficient own resources in order to consolidate our integrity and to implement our visions,” he told SportBusiness International.
 

The presidential vote will take place at the SportAccord General Assembly in St. Petersburg on May 31.
