Northern Ireland leads the way to recognising Pigeon Racing as a sport

NIAssemblyNorthern Ireland is leading the way to recognising pigeon racing as a sport.

After many months of hard work an amendment has just been passed in the Northern Ireland Assembly formally recognising pigeon racing as a ‘prescribed activity’ under Rates Legislation. When this Bill receives Royal Assent in a few months’ time, pigeon racing clubs will be able to receive 80% rates relief.

Read an article on the BBC website and the full official report on the Northern Ireland Assembly website.

The door has now been opened, and we will need to be vigilant to other opportunities, It should also be a lever to finally achieving official recognition as a sport.
