UK Anti-Doping Gets Additional £6.1m Funding

January 30, 2018

Home / Sports News /


Ahead of Tokyo 2020 the UKAD has been given an extra £6.1m of public money to keep a sports drugs-free, and promote clean athletes before the Olympics.

The increase of almost 50% from the total annual budget, the government contribution went from almost £8 to nearly £11.

The added funding is the main headline from the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport’s 10-month “tailored review” of UKAD’s performance.

Tracey Crouch, sports minister said:

“We must do all we can to make sure sport is free from doping and that players and fans are confident there is a level playing field.

“This £6m additional funding for UKAD will help us take the fight even harder to those trying to cheat through doping.

“It will also help educate people at all levels of sport about the dangers of image and performance-enhancing drugs and maintain UKAD’s standing as one of the leading anti-doping agencies in the world.”

It also urges UKAD to work more closely with law enforcement and encourage whistle-blowers to come forward.

The plan is to create a strategy to promote worldwide information in combating cheats and fraudulent athletes.
