FIRS, the International Federation of Roller Sports, is the world governing body for all Roller Sports disciplines.
FIRS is the only International Federation that rules a true mix of MULTI-SPORT, each with different targets of athletes and fans, segmented by age and geo-positioned all over the world. It was established in April 1924 in Montreux, Switzerland, by two Swiss sportsmen, Fred Renkewitz and Otto Myer, who had closed connections to the International Olympic Committee.
FIRS has a great history, and its strength has always been the way it responded to change in both the social and sporting world, turning social movements into disciplines of the highest level.
FIRS develop and promote ROLLER SPORTS in affiliated countries and increase the participation of countries still not members, growing the attendance at the MULTI-SPORTS and at the same time generating a relevant interest for World Championships and Roller Games international events.
FIRS gathers 114 World Wide National Federations, including countries from every continent.
FIRS is the Federation that will bring SKATEBOARDING to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics Games and SPEED SKATING to the Buenos Aires 2018 Youth Olympic Games.
