The International Military Sport Council (CISM) was founded on 18th of February 1948 and organizes various sporting events for the armed forces worldwide.  CISM brings together military personnel from all its 133 member country nations, who may previously have met on the battle field, enabling them to strengthen their friendship on the 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. The ultimate goal of CISM is to contribute to world peace by uniting armed forces through sports, achieving its motto, “Friendship through Sport”.
