High-Level and High-Performance Sport

“High-level sport is considered to be of interest for the State, inasmuch as it constitutes an essential factor in sports development because of the stimulus that this entails for promoting sport at a grass roots level, by virtue of the technical and scientific demands for the preparation of it, and because of its representative function in Spain at official sports competitions or trials of an international nature.” (Spanish Sports Act 10/1990, Chapter One – General Principles, Article Six). In Spain, the task of developing high-level and high-performance sport lies with the Spanish Sports Federations with the collaboration of the Autonomous Communities of the country. This activity is mainly financed by the State and its objective is to raise the level of Spanish sport internationally
