Support for Sport Businesses
SportSG plays an integral in nurturing resilience and inspiring individuals and the larger society to live better through sport. With the current COVID-19 situation, strict measures have been adopted to keep Singaporeans safe. These measures have impacted both individuals and businesses in the sport industry.
Our sport industry will need to transform to continue to inspire and engage Singaporeans to live an active and healthy lifestyle. Many individuals and businesses in Singapore will continue to face challenges and the government has introduced a suite of support measures to help both individuals and businesses tide through these difficult times.
Working together with MCCY, Sport Singapore has also implemented support measures which complement the Government’s initiatives (through the Unity, Resilience, Solidarity and Fortitude Budgets) to help both individuals and businesses transform and emerge stronger from Covid-19.
Sport Singapore’s support measures are provided in three key areas:
