IFAF Earns Recognition by the International Olympic Committee

International Federation of American Football Earns Recognition by the International Olympic Committee

10 December 2013

The Executive Board of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) announced on the 10th of December 2013 to grant the International Federation of American Football (IFAF) provisional IOC recognition during their meeting in Lausanne, Switzerland. IFAF is American Football’s international governing body with 64 member nations spanning six continents.

“IFAF is proud to receive this recognition and join the Olympic family,” IFAF President Tommy Wiking said. “The enduring ideals of sport that comprise the Olympic Charter reside in our game’s timeless values and in the spirit of the millions who love to play it.

“We thank the IOC Executive Board and administration for its support throughout this process as well as our dedicated National and Continental committees,” Wiking added. “It is especially gratifying to share this recognition with American Football athletes of all ages across the world, past and present. They have made and continue to make this an exceptional sport that captures our imaginations and unites us through competition in mind, body and heart.”

“On behalf of the IOC, we are delighted to welcome the IFAF into the Olympic Family. The federation has long demonstrated strong youth appeal and are making great progress in developing their sport around the world. We trust that this provisional recognition will generate momentum in the further universal development of their disciplines.” says Christophe Dubi, IOC Sports Director.

As American Football’s international governing body, IFAF looks after its three disciplines: tackle, flag and beach football.

Cluj Crusaders - Campioana Romaniei la Fotbal American 2012

Duminică, 14 octombrie 2012, echipa clujeană antrenată de Rafael Ruiz a câștigat a treia ediție a campionatului de fotbal american “RO Bowl III”, învingând echipa bucureșteană Rebels cu scorul de 20 – 7. Jocul s-a disputat în capitală, în incinta Complexului Studențesc Tei.
Deși au suferit o înfrângere în urmă cu două săptămâni pe stadionul din Apahida, bucureștenii impunându-se cu scorul de 16 – 26, clujenii au rămas încrezători în șansele lor. Pasiunea pentru acest sport și susținerea suporterilor, au făcut ca tinerii clujeni să găsească motivația pentru a merge mai departe și a încerca imposibilul. Clujenii au jucat cu gândul și la coechipierii care, din cauza problemelor de sănătate sau financiare nu au putut fi prezenți la jocul de duminică.RB3-1 tn

Meciul a început la ora 10:30, imnul României fiind cântat de solista Amna și lovitura onorifică executată de către Ionel Dănciulescu, un mare fan al acestui sport. Primele puncte au fost înscrise de echipa Rebels printr-o intercepție returnată pentru touchdown de Gabriel Pintescu (nr. 17), urmat de o conversie de un punct reușita de Daniel Lixandru, Rebels 7 – Crusaders 0.
