tHe .SPorT InitiatiVe

A Community-Based Internet Extension

In the crowded and complex world of the internet, the use of .sport gives a greater degree of distinctiveness, visibility and searchability and, because of the criteria applied by GAISF, confers approval and membership of, and commitment to, the sport community.

Consequently, the key benefits stem from the resulting:

  • Acceptance and trust – .sport underscores membership of the global sports eco-system
  • Authenticity – Resulting from fair scrutiny of applicants
  • Visibility – value of .sport on search engines

.sport is only available to legitimate bodies, ranging from sports governing bodies to events, clubs and the companies which supply the goods and services on which sport relies. GAISF’s ownership of the domain protects the integrity of .sport by ensuring that only properly qualified organisations and individuals can use it.

How to get your .sport domain name

Domain name applications can be made on

Full list of providers is available here:

The extension is now open for general availability (acceptance still subject to approval from GAISF).

What are the costs?

Registration service providers (official registrars and their resellers) will vary on price and service level, but the .sport registry (GAISF) has the same prices for all registrars. For a typical individual registration, the price ranges from USD 350-450 per year.

GAISF Members benefit from an exclusive portfolio approach. A portfolio may comprise hundreds of names, including the federation’s acronym, the various disciplines and subdisciplines in many languages and fully qualified event names.
