The Olympic Day held annually on June 23, is celebrated by millions of people around the Globe. Commemorating the birth of the modern Olympic Games in 1894, Olympic Day’s mission is to promote fitness, well-being, culture and education, while promoting the Olympic values of excellence, friendship and respect. On the occasion of the Olympic Day, we reflect over the contribution of Lotteries in Europe to the Olympic movement.
The sustainable lottery model based on values, like solidarity, integrity and precaution being fully in line with the Olympic values, excellence, friendship and respect, has enabled Lotteries in Europe to sustainably support the Olympic movement. Indeed, Lotteries in Europe perceive Olympism as a philosophy of life which places sport at the service of humanity and have been enthusiastically supporting the Olympic movement in many different ways.
