Current support for the development of sports infrastructure in municipalities is very different due to the high rate of economic liberalization in the municipalities. As documented in a case study of cities Olomouc and Mladá Boleslav - it depends on the individual municipalities approach to this issue. One of the causes of excessive budget burdens is gradual preference of services provided by own sport infrastructure and formally (nonparametrically) practiced grant support. The aim of this paper is to present concept of an alternative approach to the development of sport infrastructure funding in municipalities. The methodology is based on the analysis and synthesis of data on utilization of finance for the development of sport and physical education from budgets of selected regions and two cities in case studies. The authors of the paper represent one of the possible solutions of sport municipal infrastructure development, which is based on supporting a reasonable development of municipal sport infrastructure owned by the city and higher grant sport support, which allows to achieve higher flexibility of offered services, as well as a higher form of their effectiveness in terms of cost flexibility of future budget expenses.
