International Military Sports Council
Founded on the 18th of February 1948, the International Military Sports Council (Conseil International du Sport Militaire) is one of the largest multidisciplinary organisations in the world.
We organise various sporting events for the armed forces of our 131 member countries. Soldiers, who may previously have met on the battle field, now meet in friendship on the sports playing field.
This is in accordance with the philosophy and the ideals which were set in CISM’s mission statement in 1998, signed by all the member countries.
Our ultimate goal is to contribute to world peace by uniting armed forces through sports. The motto under which we operate is « Friendship through Sport ».
