SHOTLIST
Sport is central to Europe's identity and common life, and since the Lisbon treaty came into force in late 2009 the EU has had responsibility for regulating sport. Earlier this year the European Commission published a proposal on developing the EU's role in sport and the Parliament has responded with a report by Spanish EPP Group member Santiago Fisas. The report, which has broad backing across the Parliament's political groups, makes a number of suggestions about the EU's responsibility in supporting professional and amateur sport in the EU.
