Description National sports associations in Slovakia are the umbrella organizations for individual types of sports and help achieve the objectives of public policies in the field of sports. In the Slovak Republic, these sports organizations are predominantly funded from public funds. This paper focuses on the system of financing of national sports associations in the Slovak Republic according to the rules laid down by the new law on sports in 2016. The aim of the paper is to identify the main changes in the methodology of financing national sports associations in the Slovak Republic and redistribution of public resources. Based on an interview with a selected group of experts in the field of sports in Slovakia and analysis of empirical data, changes in the methodology of financing national sports associations were identified. In conclusion, it could be said that the new system of financing national sports associations following the adoption of the new law on sport is not only not fairer from the point of view of the redistribution of public funds, but also poses fundamental implementation problems.
