European Olympic Committees EU Office partners with the International Shooting Sport Federation

The European Olympic Committees EU Office (EOC EU Office) is proud to have officially partnered with the International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF). 

The EOC is the umbrella body for Europe’s 50 National Olympic Committees and works to spread the Olympic values and inspiring sport and healthy lifestyles across Europe. Thanks to the EU Office of the EOC, the organisation works to protect Europe’s leading role at the heart of global sport, and has built strong connections with European federations, government agencies and within the EU itself.  

 The ISSF is formally recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) as the sole controlling body in the Olympic Movement administering shooting sport at world level and encompassing its member organizations. The ISSF specifically supports a human, manipulation and doping-free sport and recognizes international and national anti-doping rules. It promotes and guides the development of the shooting sport, without discrimination of any kind. The ISSF is committed to an environmentally friendly and sustainable development of its sport in general and their whole organisation. 

 Through their collaboration, the EOC EU Office gains a valuable partner in the ISSF, sharing common goals. Becoming a partner of the EOC EU Office provides the ISSF with access to a skilled team offering expert guidance on EU matters, particularly in areas such as funding opportunities, sports governance, and EU legislation related to sports. 

EOC EU Office Director Folker Hellmund commented; “ISSF is already an active umbrella organisation at EU level and has successfully worked with the EOC EU Office on EU legislative files. The official partnership with the EOC EU Office will strengthen its positioning towards EU institutions, while also enhancing connections with other sport organisations which encounter similar issues.”      

ISSF President Luciano Rossi added; “We are delighted to form this exciting new partnership with the European Olympic Committees EU Office. We share common goals with the EU Office, and working with them will enrich and strengthen our operation as we move towards the Paris 2024 Games.” 

EOC President Spyros Capralos concluded: The ISSF is the 34th partner of the EOC EU Office. We are happy to welcome the umbrella organisation of this traditional Olympic sport, deeply anchored in the field of grassroots sports all over Europe. Partnering with sport shooting will be very beneficial for the EOC EU Office team which will widen its field of expertise, further benefitting other partner National Olympic Committees and federations.
