Driven by a passion for sport, founded on the DNA of top-tier management consulting

Our mission is to help our clients harness the power of sport and physical activity for the benefit of all.

In 2006 the sport sector needed an organisation that could bring together the skills of top-tier strategy consulting with deep/specific industry understanding: Portas Consulting was born.

12 years on, we are firmly established as the sport sector's trusted advisors, helping senior leaders, federations, corporates and governments around the world address their most urgent and complex issues.

Modernising and improving sport

Sport is constantly evolving on and off the pitch at all levels, with commercial models and global governance under particular scrutiny. We work with senior leaders on a range of topics to help them stay ahead of the game.


Increasing commercial returns

Sport sponsorship is expected to exceed $60billion in 2016, creating ever increasing complexity, opportunity and risk. We work with global companies to help them achieve the best return on investment.



The key to changing behaviour (e.g. getting more people active) is insight based policy-making. We use sophisticated tools and techniques to shape policy and deliver targeted initiatives.
