General aims

The International Council on Archives (ICA), through the Section on Sport Archives (SPO), aims to make governments and the public aware of the need to preserve and conserve archives belonging to all the individuals, public and private institutions, associations and other organisations linked to the world of sport.

The ICA’s activities, through ICA / SPO, are intended to raise awareness in society of the need to organise, preserve, disseminate and facilitate access to documentation and information produced by associations, clubs, federations, sports organisations and athletes, since they play a fundamental role in configuring the personal and collective memory of the world of sport and of society itself.

The complex management of the world of sport has many links with other professionals, such as those involved in health, journalism and the media, history, archive studies, political science, legislation, economics, philosophy, the sciences of physical activity, and sports and engineering, among other fields.

With a view to achieving the above aims, the ICA / SPO, the Diputació de Girona, the Girona City Council and the Generalitat de Catalunya are promoting a biennial seminar on sport archives in Girona.

Specific aims

Sports archives are the result of the management of the clubs, leagues, athletes, businesses, organizations, schools, etc., related to the world of sports. These are the ones who produce this documentation, this information, this collective memory.

Recently, there has been an apparent rise in interest in using records related to sports and an interest in its function as a type of collective memory of society.

This interest is driven by the utility they have in different fields of knowledge and research, such as sports medicine research or how sports relate to human rights, gender policy, architecture, history, childhood and engineering, among other disciplines.

Different countries have created some interesting public and private policies for preserving this sports documentation and in this way, use it in a social way, by using the information and making it accessible to the public.

It is within the framework of these emerging policies that the 2nd International Seminar on Sports Archives would like to contribute new ideas regarding sports document management and start a discussion on its application and benefits.

The 2nd Seminary on Sports Archives aims to be an inflection point for raising awareness about the transcendence and worth that sports-related archives, in its various forms, contribute to society.
