From September 1, tests will not be reimbursed anymore (except for semi-vaccinated persons, children and some other groups).

Expired program: COVID-Sport II


The Program monitors two areas of support:

1) Support for business entities organizing or co-organizing sports events.

The sporting events mean one-off events, whose aim is to achieve sports performances in competitions or recreation taking place in the Czech Republic. The event has been officially announced in the 2020 schedule (the date of the sporting event was scheduled between March 12th, 2020 - July 31st, 2020) and was intended for athletes from more than two sports clubs or for the general public. Moreover, it was supposed to be at least the second year of the event. Sports events may or may not have an international presence.

The maximum amount of the grant per one business entity (one applicant) is set at CZK 10,000,000. The minimum amount of the total eligible costs of the event is set at CZK 1,000,000. The grant provided to the receivers will cover a maximum of 50% of the expenditures stated by the Program.

2) Support for operating costs of business entities that participate in professional championships of the highest or second-highest level.

National Sports Agency evaluated ten league competitions (5 sports in two performance levels) as professional championship competitions. You can find a list of them here.

The maximum subsidy per entity is CZK 12,500,000 depending on the level of competition.
