What We Stand For

The ICSS is a globally-renowned and respected leader in sport safety, security and integrity. The ICSS is an independent and non-profit organisation and at the forefront of efforts to safeguard sport. We play an increasingly integral role in addressing critical issues in sport such as corruption, betting fraud and transparency, as well as major event safety and venue security.

Who We Are

Our team of international experts, advisors and specialists; from sectors including law enforcement, international policy, sport, government and anti-corruption; has a wealth of experience and knowledge gained from working within sport and governmental organisations such as the United Nations, UNICEF, INTERPOL, the European Commission, the IOC, FIFA and UEFA as well as national police forces.

What We Do

Sport Safety and Security

The ICSS offers expert strategic advice across all areas of sport and venue safety and security. From advising on event bidding and hosting to venue design and event master planning, we provide a comprehensive approach from threat and risk assessments to operational planning and implementation, and advanced training for safety and security professionals.

Sport Integrity

The ICSS is a well-regarded and leading voice in the fight to protect the integrity of sport. With an unrivalled team of experts committed to the drive for transparency and anti-corruption across all areas of sport, we work at the highest levels of government, international law and policing to advise and support through educational and prevention programmes, thought-leading research, advanced policy shaping, investigation and intelligence support.

Research, Training and Education

To ensure the ICSS continues its role as a pioneer in the field of sport safety, security and integrity, the organisation invests in and develops leading edge research, training and education programmes. Through ICSS Enterprise - a centre of research and innovation - we develop research agendas and initiatives that allow us to maintain our thought-leading role while working with many of the world’s leading academic institutions.

Save the Dream

As part of the ICSS commitment to safeguarding sport, the organisation has established the rapidly expanding programme, Save the Dream.

By influencing policy makers, conducting social campaigns and implementing its community projects and global initiatives, Save the Dream directly promotes the positive ethics and values of sport to young people around the world.

Working alongside our partners who are leading organisations in sport, government and civil society, Save the Dream aims to educate, inform, inspire and empower youth to play a positive role in the future of sport.

Who We Work With

The ICSS works with National Olympic Committees, International Federations, governments, cities, leagues, clubs, venue operators, major event organisers and other stakeholders to safeguard sport.

The ICSS collaborates closely with UNESCO, UNODC, UNICEF, World Health Organisation, World Bank, European Union, OECD, Council of Europe, Organization of American States, Commonwealth Sports Ministers, Community of Portuguese Language Countries, NGOs and governments to provide thought-leadership and influence policy and legislation.

In partnership with world-leading organisations and academic institutions like Harvard Kennedy School’s Center for International Development and University Paris 1 - Pantheon-Sorbonne, we undertake research to develop evidence-based solutions to build and strengthen international policies that safeguard sport and promote the use of sport for social and economic development.
