The Deputy Prime Minister recalled that Russian President Vladimir Putin has set the goal of increasing the number of people who systematically go in for sports to 70% by 2030.

Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko, within the framework of the IX International Forum “Russia is a Country of Sports”, gave the first instruction following the panel discussion “National Development Goals. 70% of the sports population by 2030: ways to achieve, risks. Digitalization as a tool and resource ”.

“The Ministry of Sports of Russia, ANO Digital Economy, in cooperation with mobile operators and representatives of the business community, needs to work out the issues of data collection and statistical calculations, taking into account international experience and proposals received during the discussion. The list of proposals should be submitted to the Government for consideration within a month, ”Dmitry Chernyshenko instructed.

The Deputy Prime Minister recalled that Russian President Vladimir Putin has set the goal of increasing the number of people who systematically go in for sports to 70% by 2030.

“At the end of last year, this percentage was 45.4%. These are people who run in the park, pull themselves up on horizontal bars in the yards, play football and volleyball on school grounds, practice online and through video courses, which has become especially important in a pandemic. But when collecting data on amateur athletes in our country, we faced challenges that we are already working on. Now we need to jointly develop a mechanism for collecting and processing data, analyze the experience of foreign colleagues. Combine everything into a single base, understand what types of motivation and support we can offer them. It will not be possible to do this without digital transformation of sports and the creation of a unified ecosystem, ”added Dmitry Chernyshenko.

He also brought up the experience of using digital technologies in some countries, where an amateur athlete is assigned a unique Sport ID, which allows a citizen to receive support measures and relevant offers from the state and business.

Dmitry Chernyshenko invited the panelists to share their experience and their ideas on how to properly collect large, clean data on the number of people involved in sports, use them competently and efficiently, and, in addition, how to motivate Russians to go in for sports.
