Who We Are

About the ICSS

The International Centre for Sport Security (ICSS) is a global, independent and non-profit organisation. We work tirelessly to address some of the most prominent challenges and issues facing the world of sport today, as well as to protect it from emerging and future threats. 

Having brought together respected leaders from sport, government agencies, law enforcement, international organisations, academia and the business community, we have an established team of experts in the fields of sport, international cooperation and event safety and security, sport integrity and socio-economic development.

Through our services and with the support of our donors, the ICSS has been able to invest in several pioneering initiatives to safeguard sport – from initiating the first-ever research into the scale of manipulation of sports competitions as part of the Sorbonne-ICSS Sport Integrity Research Programme (2012-2014), to working with the international organisations leading to the development of advanced policies in different fields pertaining to the protection of sport – the ICSS continues to make an impact through project expansion and building new programmes in collaboration with our partners. 

Our Mission

As an independent global hub, we strive to safeguard sport through our commitment and work to ensure good governance, integrity and safety and security in sport.

Our Vision

For sport to be safe and ethically governed so that its positive values remain an inspiration for all.
