The Ministry of Sport & Youth Affairs of Georgia (Georgian: საქართველოს სპორტისა და ახალგაზრდობის საქმეთა სამინისტრო, sakartvelos sportisa da akhalgazrdobis sakmeta saministro) is a governmental agency within the Cabinet of Georgia in charge of regulating activities related to sports and youth development in Georgia.

History

The ministry was established in 2010 as a result of restructuring activities within the Georgian government in June 2010.[2] The preceding Ministry of Culture, Monuments Protection and Sports was split into two separate government agencies: Ministry of Sport and Youth Affairs and Ministry of Culture and Monument Protection.[3][4] The split was made due to growing importance of sports among youth in Georgia. In 2010, the government allocated GEL 29,236.4 million to the ministry; in 2011 - 30,927.6 million.[5]
