Crysbro and NOCSL launch ‘NextOlympicHope’

21 February, 2021

Poultry company Crysbro has teamed up with the National Olympic Committee of Sri Lanka (NOCSL) to launch, a novel digital funding portal that enables the public to financially sponsor rural athletes, school sports associations, and sports clubs and chambers across the island.

All funds collected through this portal will be fully disbursed in an entirely transparent manner to the entities there were contributed, a process carefully overlooked, and strictly overseen by the Technical Committee of the NOCSL.

The NextOlympicHope portal is a comprehensive and fully secured, state-of-the-art portal, maintained by the NOCSL. All requests for funding are submitted by regional sports associations and individual athletes, and are thoroughly reviewed and prioritized by the NOCSL Technical Committee. Members of the public who wish to support these endeavours can do so through online payments, and keep track of the progress of each project.

The platform also offers up-to-date information about each athlete as well; complete profile, performance statistics, wins and details of future competitions. It also reports on the latest news and advancements in Sri Lankan sports.

The ‘NOCSL-CRYSBRO Next Champ’ scholarship program is phase-II of Crysbro’s ‘Next Champ’ scholarship program, which up to date has groomed and supported the dreams of 130 young athletes from the under-privileged regions of the country. The initiative has also successfully produced a collection of athletes who secured gold and silver medals at the recent South Asian Games in Nepal.
