Lausanne, June 6, 2014: SportAccord Convention, SportAccord President, Marius L. Vizer, has signed agreements that will share dividends from the annual SportAccord Convention with the umbrella organisations of SportAccord Member Sports Federations.
Together, the Association of IOC Recognised International Sports Federations – ARISF composed of 35 IFs, and the Alliance of Independent Members of SportAccord – AIMS composed of 24 IFs, make up more than half of SportAccord Member International Sports Federations and are big contributors to the World Sport Movement.
As appreciation of the true diversity of Sport and the position of these organisations, they have been recognised as Official Partners of the SportAccord Convention and will receive a dividend percentage from SportAccord.
“Recognising ARISF and AIMS as Official Partners of the SportAccord Convention and providing them with dividends from SportAccord revenues is a token of appreciation and support for the important work that they and their members have done and will continue to do in the interest of sport. We hope this support will enable ARISF and AIMS to better provide value-adding benefits to our Members”, said SportAccord President, Marius L. Vizer.
