2 CSR Overview in Sport – Some pointers.. For years businesses have tended to spend their CSR budgets on supporting environmental or arts-based causes but increasingly sport is being seen as a way to meet social and community obligations.. Why? Discuss in groups as to why you think this. Sport is regarded as a much more influential channel than the arts; reaching and engaging with more people from across the entire social and demographic spectrum. Again, why? A tip; think of the money involved within sport and the spectators involved. The European Sponsorship Association’s market trends survey of 2007 pointed out that CSR is becoming part of a more eclectic sponsorship mix. This is something that sports rights holders are starting to take advantage of.
