Ifis Sport

The values ​​of Sport represent us
for this reason we have decided to join forces with numerous sports realities.

Since 2006, the European Union has acknowledged the significant contribution made by sport to the continent’s economy; not just as a driver for growth and employment, but also for its positive effects on the health of citizens, on territorial growth, tourism and social integration. The EU has asked Italy to follow the example of other virtuous countries by equipping itself with the tools needed to measure the value of sport nationally. To respond to the European Union request to report regularly on Sport System data, Banca Ifis has started publishing an annual Report. Its first edition was presented on 30 March in the CONI offices in Rome, in the presence of Giovanni Malagò, President of CONI, and Ernesto Furstenberg Fassio, Deputy Chairman of Banca Ifis.

In 2022, the Observatory monitored the evolution of the Italian sport system, carrying out an in-depth study on the youth sport ecosystem. Banca Ifis, which has always been close to the world of sport, is this year supporting the growth of young Federation athletes by donating 160,000 Euros worth of scholarships. The initiative and new advertising campaign were presented on 15 December in Rome by the Chairman of CONI Giovanni Malagò and the Chairman of Banca Ifis Ernesto Fürstenberg Fassio.

“Banca Ifis has always had a lively interest in sport and this has led us to support worthy initiatives for the professional, amateur and youth sport system.”

The extraordinary 2020-2021 two-year period lived by sport forces us to assess the historical trend differently; to consider the constraints and restrictions imposed by the pandemic. That is why this edition of the Observatory presents data considering 2019 as an average year of reference.
