BRAZIL (November 9, 2023) — The Committee for the Defense of Women’s Rights of the Chamber of Deputies approved a bill that allocates a 30% quota of the funds collected from lotteries to female sports, which are passed on to sporting entities.
The text also provides that 5% of the resources transferred to entities of the National Confederation of Clubs (Fenaclubes) will be allocated to training programs for social club managers and promoting female participation in management and leadership positions in sport.
Bill 3646/23, by deputy Natália Bonavides (PT-RN), received a favorable opinion from the rapporteur, deputy Lêda Borges (PSDB-GO).
“By promoting the development of women’s sport and encouraging, from the ground up, those female athletes who dedicate themselves and work in various sports, the project aims to improve the infrastructure and increase the visibility of competitions in this area”, explained Lêda Borges.
According to the proposal, entities that receive resources from lotteries will have a period of one year, from the publication of the law, to adapt to the new rules.
The project amends the Sports Betting Law.
The proposal that is being processed conclusively will be analyzed by the Sports commissions; and Constitution and Justice and Citizenship.
