Sport brings people together, drives technological innovation and is a healthy undertaking in Brabant, both physically and financially. BrabantSport's mission is to make Brabant even stronger through sport. Director Michel Reinders: “We make people healthier and, as an added bonus, this activity also showcases how innovative we are here in Brabant.”

Brabant has produced many world-class athletes, such as Marianne Vos and Steven Kruijswijk in cycling, and professional darts player Michael van Gerwen. They top their respective rankings and people in Brabant are very proud of them. “Someone from South Holland is less likely to identify with an athlete originating from that province, but here in Brabant, we stand behind our athletes”, says Reinders.
