ICSS Europe is an independent organisation based in London, UK, that is affiliated to the ICSS, which is an international, independent and not for profit with an aim to improve security, safety and integrity throughout the world of sport. ICSS Europe works with European partners in the field of sport safety, security and integrity, including the European Professional Football Leagues (EPFL), Deutsche Fußball Liga (DFL), Liga Nacional de Fútbol Profesional (LFP), Lega Pro, European Lotteries and the Olympic Committee of Portugal. It works also with leagues, clubs, venue operators, major event organisers and other stakeholders to safeguard sport. For instance, ICSS Europe has developed a proactive stance in the fight against corruption and other detrimental practices in sport and addresses emerging trends which further threaten sport at global level, such as good governance in sport and protection of young athletes. The ICSS collaborates closely with UNESCO, UNODC, UNICEF, World Health Organisation, World Bank, European Union, OECD, Council of Europe, Organization of American States, Commonwealth Sports Ministers, Community of Portuguese Language Countries, NGOs and governments to provide thought-leadership and influence policy and legislation.

Through the Save the Dream initiative ICSS and ICSS Europe promote and protect the core values of sport for young people. Save the Dream works to empower youth and inspire societies towards a sport free from corruption, violence, discrimination and any other misconduct. In pursuit of these aims, several projects have been undertaken including:

  • Partnering with the International Association of Sport Journalists (AIPS) on a project that is educating young journalists about the values and integrity of sport and on a new digital video channel that will spread positive stories about the values of sport;
  • Encouraging young sports fans in high schools across Italy through the programme Tifiamo Positivo/Let’s Cheer Positively;
  • Partnering with UNICEF and child protection organisations in Brazil to protect children from violence and discrimination during major sporting events;
