05 June 2019

WFDF is pleased to announce that the French Federation of Flying Disc (FFFD) was recognized by the Comité National Olympique et Sportif Français (CNOSF), the National Olympic Committee of France. The FFFD membership was accepted during the Annual Congress on 28 May 2019 after a recommendation by the CNOSF Executive Committee.

“The recognition of our French Federation is a key milestone for the development of WFDF. This is great news for the Flying Disc community in France and for all friends of our sport around the globe,” stated Robert “Nob” Rauch, WFDF President. “WFDF has been making consistent progress in terms of National Olympic Committees recognizing our member associations, with FFFD now becoming the 14th WFDF member to be part of their NOC. We are happy to see France, with its competitive flying disc program, be accepted as a member of CNOSF, and we hope that they will get even more young athletes interested in Flying Disc sports."

“The French Federation of Flying Disc is proud of the decision supported by 82% of the French National Olympic Committee (CNOSF) to join the French Olympic movement,” commented Franck Leygues, FFFD President. “Sports politics in France are changing a lot and it was an important milestone for FFFD to get French NOC recognition. This is the achievement of 20 years of work for FFFD, and we cannot discount the boost we got from the efforts of WFDF in their Paris 2024 application. The French Federation continues to support WFDF in its goal to be a part of the Olympic Programme in the future. I would like also to warmly thank WFDF Executive Director Volker Bernardi for his support in our CNOSF application, and we are certain that our experience will be helpful to other WFDF members in getting their national Olympic recognition.“

There are now 14 member associations of WFDF which are recognized by their National Olympic Committees (NOCs), including Chinese Taipei, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Hong Kong China, Hungary, Japan, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland and the United States of America.
