The municipalities having an administrative and financial autonomy has an important role in the country's governance structure and in delivering the sports services to the public. And in this study we tried to examine the sports policies of the municipalities in Turkey. The research is a descriptive study to determining of the status within the framework of literature and we used a general screening model of qualitative research methods. Written sources have been scanned as a means of data collection. As a result, it has been concluded that the municipalities did not pay the required attention to the sports in their own governance structures, that they did not have sports policies which will meet the demands and the needs of the local people, but they made investments in a way to serve the football in accordance with their political concerns and did not make adequate arrangements for sports facilities in their city plans.
