However, different organizations related to sports have been organizing programs for capacity building of players and competitions for the promotion and development of country’s sports sector. According to the Ministry, 206 organizations related to sports sector have been formally registered.

Out of 181 organizations active in the country, 124 have conducted annual general assembly in the previous fiscal year. Of them, 148 organizations have got international recognition.

Various sports related programs are being organized at local level to build a moral, disciplined and dignified society through the medium of sports.
