In its dialogue with EU officials, UESA aims at strengthening the notion of specificity of sport, i.e. the special characteristics that distinguish Subbuteo and other sports from all other economic sectors.

In addition, UESA’s work with the EU institutions builds on the structures of the European sports model, underpinned by the sports federations. The protection of minors, financial fair play, sports betting and match-fixing, and broadcasting are some of the most pressing questions facing Subbuteo governance and recurrently discussed at EU level.

On many of these policy areas UESA cooperates closely with other sports federations, at both European and international levels.
