Beyond Sport is a global organisation that promotes, supports and celebrates the use of sport to address social issues in communities around the world. We do this through convening, supporting and advising the worlds of sport, business, government, and development on how sport can be used as a tool to achieve both social and business objectives.
Since 2009, Beyond Sport has held major events in London, New York, Chicago, Cape Town, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Glasgow and Johannesburg; provided over $5.5 million worth of funding and support to projects across six continents addressing a range of social issues; commissioned four research projects with leading universities; facilitated groundbreaking action in child protection, girls education, urban communities, sustainability, STEM education and sports role in supporting refugees; and built sustainable sport courts in disadvantaged communities around the world.
Beyond Sport was established by Benchmark Sport International - a suite of brands and businesses that specialise in the development of networks in the business and social sectors. As an entrepreneurial company, Benchmark Sport has developed a reputation for building prestigious sports brands from the ground up and is now responsible for some of the biggest flagship events in sport, business, entertainment and philanthropy.
