  • EFCS purpose and activities are today clearly related to a need expressed as well by employees and employers. Whether it is for social issues, management, corporate culture, networking, productivity or health, the positive impact of physical activity within the workplace is now recognized. Employees’ well-being and performance: two arguments that resonate with employees and key decision makers. Company sport is much more than sport!

    Mr Didier BESSEYRE - President World (WFCS) and European Federation for Company Sport (EFCS)

    Mr Tibor NAVRACSICS - European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport
  • I firmly believe in company sport because of its numerous positive assets. However, do not forget the non-active workers! Even though they may be inactive, many of them are convinced that sport practice on the workfloor is beneficial both for workers and employers. Company sport is a win-win situation.
