Amateur Sport Association calls for clubs to be protected

From Morning Report, 8:50 am on 28 November 2023

Community sport clubs are worried new legislation which favours corporate business models will force many to close.

They have until April 2026 to re-register under the new Incorporated Societies Act 2022 - or be disbanded.

Under the new rules Clubs have to rewrite their constitutions and include additional procedures, like dispute resolution processes.

The Amateur Sport Association says community sports clubs should be protected.

The Association's Chair Gordon Noble-Campbell spoke to Ingrid Hipkiss.
