Numerous sporting activities have faded for several reasons which include poor funding, poor management skills, and lack of entertainment. Establishing a new sporting activity requires several steps to be taken. When a new sport is created, it must be signed to all respective associating bodies. Failure to do this will render such sporting activity ineligible for sportsmen to join. Poor funding of old sports is a major reason why new sporting activities are not created. Creating a new sporting activity requires adequate funding from a private body or the government.
Inadequate funding for old sports has discouraged people from creating new sports. Salaries of sportsmen are not paid to time and their income is low when compared to their workload. Poor funding by the government is a major disadvantage of establishing new recreational events. The government’s failure to properly invest in old sports has discouraged people from creating new sports. The lack of interest in sports by the government has discouraged people from establishing new sports. Poor management of funds in sports is a problem faced by their various associations. Embezzlement of money by sport institution leaders has made people lose interest in creating new recreational events.
Corruption is a big problem faced by sports as executives steal their association’s money. The financial assistance rendered by the government is embezzled by sports executives. Establishing a new sport is stressful as it takes time and money to register it into associative bodies. Associations require you to pay certain fees to get your recreational event registered. These fees, which are referred to as signage fees, require enough capital. If you don’t have enough capital to start a recreational activity, it would be difficult to set up. Excellence in sports requires you to recognize your weaknesses and find ways to correct them.
Lack of passion by sportsmen to thrive for excellence is a major factor considered by people who planned to create new sports. If a sportsman doesn’t mean to accept his mistakes and correct them, fans will lose interest in him. People are not willing to leave sports for a new activity because of different reasons. Understanding new sports takes time and if it is not well-paying, people would not join them. Fees required by ticket holders to watch new sports is a problem for fans. You can’t expect your fans to leave something they like for developing sports. Poor attendance recorded in new sports has discouraged people from establishing new sports.
The number of people who spend time watching new sports is low. The subscription fee for new sports is a major reason why new sports are not created anymore. A competitive event that doesn’t entertain doesn’t get enough viewers. New sports fail to get viewers because they are not as exciting as established sports. For instance, football which is already established as a recreational event would get more viewers than new sports. Subscribers charge sports organizers certain fees to get their activities aired. The poor attitude shown in developing sports has discouraged people from creating new sports as they don’t get viewed enough.
