ISSF - International Shooting Sport Federation

issf-logo Although shooting was part of the first Olympic Games in 1896, it was not until 1907 that an international association was founded.
On occasion of the International Matches in Milano ITA in June 1906, it was decided to prepare statutes and shooting sports rules for an international association. A year later, on July 17, 1907, representatives of eight national organizations met in Zürich SUI and founded the Union Internationale des Fédérations et Associationes Nationales de Tir . The foundation was notarized on June 30, 1908 in Wien AUT.
After the self-dissolution on May 15, 1915, aggred by postal vote, the association reorganized itself on April 16, 1920 under the name Union Internationale de Tir (UIT) at the invitation of Mérillon. In 1939 the activities were stopped again. It was not until the end of 1946 that UIT resumed work under the name International Shooting Union, officially titled in English. The abbreviation stayed with UIT, as the possible name ISU had been used by the International Skating Union since 1892. The name was changed to International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) at the General Assembly on July 15, 1998 in Barcelona ESP.
