Sochi, Russia: The SportAccord General Assembly convened at the SportAccord World Sport and Business Summit on Monday 20 April 2015 with the presidential elections on top of the agenda. Incumbent president, Marius Vizer was the only unchallenged candidate for the post and won the re-election in a unanimous vote. This is Mr. Vizer’s first full 4-year term as SportAccord President, having been elected to the post for the first time in 2013 for a 2-year term.

“I want to mention and specify that I see SportAccord in its nascent stage. When we speak about efficiency, we are taking the right steps. I established and put together a structure for successful organisation. With your (IFs) assistance, this organisation will be successful,” said Mr. Vizer after winning the election.

IFMA would like to congratulate Mr Marius Vizer on being re-elected as SportAccord President. IFMA looks forward to working closely with SportAccord and all the International Federations in the sporting world to use the power of sport to change the world.
