There is no universally accepted definition of sport governance. The Sports Governance Principles, 2020 provided by Sport Australia defines sports governance as the brain i.e., the thinking and monitoring part of an organization. Sport Australia is a national government agency that is responsible for the implementation of governance policies and administration of government funds in various National Sporting Federations (NSFs) in Australia. Good governance has gained significant importance in light of the various corruption scandals and mismanagement in sporting organizations in recent years.
