Parallel Bodies in Sports Industry: Risk to Reputation, Regulatory Process, Resources and Talent
Development of sports within a country is dependent upon the federations that manage and organize them, and any
instability in either its infrastructure or in running of these federations, puts the sports of a particular country at a risk
of deterioration. Conflicts within and in between sport federations usually occur due to the money, power and
authority vested in them resulting in certain negative consequences. The federations fight to avail sport related
privileges and while doing so divert from their actual goals and cause damage to sport development. . The current
research explores causes of risk event (formation of parallel bodies) and its impact (severe damage to sports), in
context of sports in Pakistan. Furthermore, it also proposes ways to get rid of the factors responsible for the afore-
mentioned risk event and suggests methods to secure federations in case if this risk event ensues. The results
indicate that this type of risk event is damaging for all kinds of sports, from grass root to national and international
levels. It harms not only the sport persons, but also sports structures, resources and talents and puts the reputation of
sports federations at stake.
