Sport has not only become a vehicle for social inclusion in Colombia, but also a budding industry contributing to economic development. While public sector investment has been promising, the private sector has been more reticent, and has mainly focused on sponsoring big-name teams and athletes. This is likely to change now that the basis of professional sports development, aside from football, has been established. In addition to a range of investment opportunities from specialised training to the promotion of particular sports, the most popular sporting disciplines are currently experiencing improved levels of sponsorship, a consequence of their higher visibility domestically and internationally.
