The article is focused on the topic of public policy in civic society which is a relatively new phenomenon in the Czech Republic. After 1989, the sport sector has gone through great changes related to the implementation of the principles of decentralization, pluralism, privatization and liberalism. Sport promotion has also become a subject of the public sector activities, where public administration at all its territorial levels has gained great importance. The question how sport is now included in the public administration policy, concretely at the level of the municipalities, has to be dealt with. Using the case study method, this article analyses the situation in two districts of Prague (Prague 11, Prague 13) through the optics of theoretical, political, and sociological backgrounds of the up-to-now sport development in the Czech Republic.
