Oliver Dowden – 2021 Comments on the Sport Survival Package

The comments made by Oliver Dowden, the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport on 29 March 2021.

We promised to stand by and protect our major spectator sports when we had to postpone fans returning.

Through our Sport Survival Package and existing business support schemes, we have helped hundreds of clubs to survive this difficult winter period. As the turnstiles begin to open over the coming weeks, players, staff and fans across the country can now look forward to a full return to action with confidence.
