Galis was nominated for the post by Prime Minister Robert Fico. His task will be to coordinate and initiate activities linked to the preparation of concept documents, legislation, football and ice hockey infrastructure, as well as preparing a new system of sports management. The agenda should also concern attempts to link the sphere of sports to health care, the social sphere, tourism and the prevention of negative societal influences (e.g. drugs).
