Stoke-on-Trent City of Sport is a City-wide initiative to celebrate and encourage sport and physical activity.

The award of European City of Sport 2016 by ACES Europe led to plenty of new opportunities to get engaged in sport last year. The City Council is continuing the programme through 2017 and beyond as part of its continuing commitment to the City of Sport ethos:

1. To improve the health and wellbeing of the local population

2. Help with the creation of jobs in the city and help local people to gain new skills

3. Support regeneration by helping create a positive image to people outside Stoke-on-Trent
