Registration details

Registration details can be found in the TLD reference chart.  


To register and renew a .SPORT domain name the Registrant must be an individual or a legal entity with a nexus to the .SPORT community at the time of registration and thereafter. Specifically, Registrants in .SPORT must be recognized performers, organizers, promoters or supporters of federated Sport, or belong to categories of Registrants recognized by the .SPORT Policy Advisory Board (PAB). Eligible Registrants include, inter alia:

  1. Sports Performers and Organizers: This class of registrants is intended to encompass those individuals, businesses, and organizations that produce sport content as publicly visible performers or organize and structure it. Specifically enumerated members of this group include: athletes, clubs, trainers, support staff, events, governing bodies, etc.
  2. Corporate Partners: This class of registrants is intended to encompass businesses and organizations who support the production of sport content by providing resources in exchange for sport-related visibility, including sponsors and media.

Validation of said nexus will be carried out on a case by case basis by the Registry Operator. Registrants are required to state the intended use for the registered domain name. A false statement of intended use is an indication of bad faith and may be the basis for the suspension of the domain name.

Special Requirements

A free-format text field called "intended-use" is presented during registration. The intended use of this field is to state the registrant's intended use of the domain (such as "website for sports club" or "personal website and email". It is also the best way to provide additional useful information for the validation team. (e.g. "domain matches the popular nickname of our football club").

The information submitted in the "intended-use" field will be taken into account by the validation team(Registry) as criteria in favor of the registrant in checking if the role the registrant is commensurate with the registered or applied-for domain.
