ISCA Membership

Become a member and join our growing network

The INTERNATIONAL SPORT AND CULTURE ASSOCIATION (ISCA) is your opportunity to connect across borders and sectors with likeminded stakeholders in the field of grassroots sport, recreation and physical activity.

From startups to the world’s largest organizations

Our members span across five continents and this network is ever expanding.

ISCA supports organizations from all corners of the planet.

  • Cynthia Debono Founder and Director MOVE Malta
    This network has connected me to many like-minded people and amazing partners who inspire and support me and my organisation.
  • Mihai Androhovici Vice President Romanian Federation Sport for All
    This organisation has great knowledge, as well as experience in gaining funding for international projects.
  • Andreu Raya Demidoff President Deporte para la Educación y la Salud
    The common DNA shared by the ISCA team and its members is the key to our success. ISCA is much more than an organisation that promotes physical activity and healthy lifestyles. It is a big family and the meeting point where knowledge, experience, actions and emotions are shared.
  • Gábor Balogh President Hungarian School Sport Federation
    Becoming an ISCA member has meant for our organisation that we have also become a member of a team that is truly dedicated to its main mission: moving people. We were impressed to find a very professional and still flexible working culture at ISCA.
  • Mojca Markovic Secretary for international affairs and sport infrastructure Sports Union of Slovenia
    SUS (the Sports Union of Slovenia) is a founding member of ISCA. SUS continues to be a member because of our excellent cooperation with ISCA, our similar policies, interests and strategies, as well as compatible projects: SUS on a national and ISCA on an international level.
Full testimonials

How has ISCA achieved such a strong position in the sport and physical activity sector?

ISCA has an outstanding track record in tendering and implementing externally funded projects and has earned high credibility vis-à-vis international institutions. ISCA has earned this recognition by consistently delivering initiatives that raise awareness of the benefits of sport and physical activity, make grassroots sports activities more attractive and accessible, and support others in developing activities and events that promote sport for all.



ISCA Members the ISCA Family

We work closely with our member organisations, international NGOs, and the public and private sectors to embark on projects and campaigns that encourage broader participation in grassroots sport and physical activity.

All of our initiatives aim at keeping grassroots sport high on the political agenda and influence policy making, as well as stimulating an exchange of knowledge and best practices.
