game changer: How climate change is impacting sports in the UK

 
 
 
 

THE SPORTS WE LOVE ARE AT RISK FROM CLIMATE CHANGE

Sport is central to our national culture, providing enjoyment, boosting health and a source of passion and delight for millions. The triumph and tragedy of great sporting moments at St Andrews, the Principality Stadium or Wembley sit atop a hive of grassroots sports clubs which are woven into the fabric of our nations.

But some of the UK’s best loved sports are facing an unexpected threat: climate change, and the changing risks of extreme weather that it brings, is already affecting sports across the country.

Our new report, backed by the scientific expertise of the Priestley International Centre for Climate, focuses on four sports with hundreds of years of history between them: golf, football, skiing and cricket. Read, share, and show the love to join us in helping to protect the sports we love for generations to come.
