Football: Amateur clubs are losing, less worry about survival
09.31 am: More than half of the amateur clubs in football are sure that the season will end with a loss due to the corona crisis. Still, the acute emergency is less than expected in May.

This is evident from a survey by the Association of Amateur Football Associations (BAV), which includes approximately 1,600 clubs.
Only 14 percent do not think they will make a loss, while 34 percent still have doubts. The numbers about the losses are higher than the 2019-2020 season. Of those surveyed, 61.6 percent indicated that they did not close that financial year with a loss. No less than 82.7 percent of the respondents received help from the government through one or more support packages.

Athletics: International Federation Launches Action for Gender Equality
07.00 am: World athletics association World Athletics is launching a campaign on Monday to further work on gender equality within sport. Under the hashtag #WeGrowAthletics, the association wants to increase the role of girls and women in athletics on three fronts. There must be more women in leadership positions, traditions must be broken and social platforms must pay more attention to stories about women. The action starts on March 8, International Women’s Day.
The aim of World Athletics is to have the number of men and women in board positions in balance by 2027. Now the ratio is still 70 percent men against 30 percent women. The union also wants to break with a number of traditions in which there is inequality. In 2022, for example, the World Cup in Oregon will conclude for the first time with a section for women. “Gender equality should no longer be a theoretical discussion in an organization,” said President Sebastian Coe. “More needs to be done. Athletics has been an example in many ways since the 1980s, for example in terms of an equal program for men and women and equal pay. But there is still more to do. ”
