CII Global Sports Summit ‘Scorecard’ 2018

The fourth edition of CII Global Sports Summit ‘Scorecard’ 2018 is scheduled to be held on 26 – 27 July 2018 at Hotel Le Meridian, New Delhi. The mission of the initiative is to get 300 crore children to play for an hour every day and the theme for this year’s summit is – ‘Sports @ 2022: Making India Play’

The CII Sports ‘Making India Play’ fund aims to invest in sports development so that sports education and sports infrastructure become more accessible to the youth of the nation. CII believes that sports is a tool for social inclusion and allowing it to grow beyond leagues and sponsorships can turn India’s sporting vision into reality.

The event will bring together top names from India and overseas operating in various segments of sports. Key industry stakeholders will have the opportunity to deliberate and discuss the most suitable course of action for boosting sports in India with a focus on sports education in schools.

At the event, our CEO, Srikrishna Sridhar Murthy will moderate a session on ‘CSR Funding in Grassroot Sports’ on 27 July from 10:00 – 11:00 hrs.

Sattva is privileged to partner with CII-Sports for this transformative initiative.

Sports in Education: CII Sports

India, with its large young population, increasing levels of opportunity, and with highly successful sporting leagues, is at the cusp of a sporting revolution. We are poised to take a giant leap – which can potentially catapult our standing on the world stage and create opportunities for employment.

The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) and Sattva strongly believe that the role of sports in holistic development and social inclusion has a ripple effect on socio-economic growth. Sattva is working closely with CII on the Making India Play Fund to realise its vision of bringing about a culture of sports in the country through the following actionable areas:

1. Evangelising sports with a strong emphasis on the grassroots level
2. Creating a culture of sports in schools through the formal education system
3. Optimal utilisation of sports infrastructure and efficient creation of new facilities
4. Enhancing the involvement of the corporate sector in scaling up the ‘business of sports’
5. Channelising corporate CSR funds for the development of sports.
