What We Do

Sporting Heritage….Working to keep the nation’s sporting stories and alive!

Sporting Heritage CIC are the UK’s network and support organisation for all those who own, look after or work with, sporting stories, collections, and memorabilia.

We help people across the UK to protect and share their diverse collections and stories. We raise awareness and knowledge of sporting stories and collections. We create opportunities to share and celebrate the impact of sporting heritage on diverse agendas and we advocate and influence policy and funding priorities on behalf of those working with sporting heritage.

We do this because sporting heritage is at risk! And the stories of the sporting past reach hearts, minds and bodies in a way nothing else can. Because sporting heritage tells the diverse stories and collections of everyone’s sporting past. And because, without us, many stories and collections would disappear – shifting the story of sport, and removing in particular, diverse stories and heritage from the public record.

We’re aiming for a national distributed collection of sport, where sporting heritage is acknowledged as crucial to individuals and communities, and where seeing an exhibition of diverse sporting heritage in your local museum is a reality!
