Sport is a devolved matter, and responsibility for the delivery of grassroots sport in Wales sits with Sport Wales. However, UK Sport, ​which receives funding from the UK government and the National Lottery and prepares athletes for Olympic and Paralympic Games, works closely with Sport Wales, including on ​support for leadership in sport, for the 66 World Class Programme athletes who indicate Wales as their home nation, and on​ securing the rights to host major sports events. Such events in Wales since 2013​ have generated an estimated ​£11m in economic impact.
