To promote the understanding, development and good practice of sports statistics worldwide, with particular focus on methodological problems involved and the in-field application of methods and models, from three different perspectives:

(a) scientific research, (b) Statistical Capacity Building, and (c) education.
Re (a), specific goals are concerned with organizing workshops, specialized sessions at conferences and events, promoting special issues in scientific journals, disseminating internationally useful and comparable data on sports.
Re (b), special effort is devoted to enable statistical practitioners in the sport sector to use state-of-the-art methods for data collection, analysis and interpretation.
Point (c) is pursued at different levels: schools, universities, sport societies, national and international Federations. The three channels do not develop independently, but the specific activities are integrated and put in synergy with each other.
