The Brazilian sports system has a large number of managing entities for each modality, be they regional (federations) or national (confederations).
Although they have a legal structure following the associative model, sports leagues, federations and confederations have great appeal due to the important role they play in being the guardians of the sports they represent.
In order to leverage the competitions they organize, they must be equipped with the best management practices so that the sports results are achieved by the competitors.
