Abstract: The case study proposes a new approach to restructuring of sport financing for a municipality with 24 thousand inhabitants. The methodical approach is based on the analysis of financial flows of institutional and non-institutional sport support, analysis of municipal budget, analysis of current sport infrastructure and current grant policy. By using comparative methods with other cities in the Czech Republic, it was discovered that Litoměřice has above average percentage share for the operating financing of sport (2.9 – 11.3 % of the municipal spending), high ratio of institutional subsidies (72 – 97%) and low but increasing share of non-institutional sport support (3 – 28%). Based on the analysis, there is no need to increase financial means for sport, which could have negative budget impacts in the future. Instead, the proposal focuses on rebalancing the institutional support in favour of demand driven non-institutional support - in particular the use of grant policy with the help of program finaning
