World Archery (FITA)

“World Archery is the international governing body for the sport of archery.

It is responsible for setting the rules and regulations for international archery events, organising the World Archery Championships and for the sport at the Olympic Games, Paralympic Games and World Games.

Founded on 4 September 1931 in Lwow, Poland (now known as Lviv, Ukraine) as Fédération Internationale de Tir à l'Arc or FITA, by seven countries – France, Czech Republic, Sweden, Poland, USA, Hungary and Italy – the international archery federation’s mission was to promote archery worldwide through the unification of rules and development of international events. The name of the federation was officially changed to World Archery at Congress in Turin 2011, following the launch of a modern rebrand in 2009 and the retirement of the FITA identity.”  – from World Archery website


International Field Archery Association (IFAA)

“The IFAA is an archery association that was formally founded 1970 (even though tournaments were already organised in Europe from 1967) when a group of field archers from the USA, Sweden, England, Scotland, Wales and Canada agreed on a set of basic rules by which Field Archery tournaments would be run. We now represent over 50 000 field archers in 45 member countries from all continents. The IFAA is a member of TAFISA, the “The Association for International Sport for All”, an association with over 500 members and which is recognised by the IOC, as well as various other macro bodies.”

Member countries of the IFAA host the World Field Archery Championships in the even years and the World Bowhunter Championships, as well as our Indoor Archery Championships are held in the years after the World Field Championships.”  – from the International Field Archery Association website
