About the programme

Through training and peer-to-peer learning opportunities, Champions develop practical solutions, skills and approaches to drive OpenActive forward. Champions represent the broad range of organisations that make up the OpenActive community, from startups to Active Partnerships.

We relaunched the Champions programme in April 2018, and we plan to recruit a new cohort of Champions every four months. To be the first to know when applications re-open, sign up below.
