A new International Armwrestling organisation is finalizing registering process. The structure is ready, informs Anders Axklo.
A provisional board under the leadership of Anders Axklo have worked with setting up a structure that can grow into the functional and transparent organization that the world armwrestling community needs.
The new international non-profit organization has been filed to Swiss Chamber of Commerce under Swiss law as the International Federation of Armwrestling (IFA) and will within short be available for national federations to join as full members. The choice of Switzerland follows international practice for global sports organisations, for example IOC, GAISF, CAS, FIFA and many more.

In short IFA will be under the same legislation as these organisations, something that has been long overdue in armwrestling.
The structure is now in place, and leading up to the first Open World Championships 2019. The provisional board will work with all things needed in preparation for the first championships, and also preparing for the member’s first General Assembly, where open and free elections will be held to set the first executive board.
New international organisation is open to all national federations (full membership) as well as clubs and individual country’s representatives (limited membership), to all who want to help in the shaping of the future of armwrestling.
