The International Council of Amateur Sports (ICAS) is a non-profit, not a political, not state organization, which public initiative aimed to develop international humanitarian cooperation and friendship throughout the world. Created after the signing of the World Charter of Amateur Sports on August 3, 2017 - the Roman Charter. Its goal is to unite sports amateurs all over the world.
ICAS promotes vital competition, friendship and mutual understanding between sportsmen, regardless of age, gender, race, religion or sporting status.
A group of amateur athletes participating in veteran competitions, meeting in Auckland, New Zealand, decided to organize the International Council of Amateur Sports.
It seems right to go through a historically verified way - by signing the World Charter of Amateur Sports and then organizing a movement around the International Council of Amateur Sports, as it was in the late 19th century, thanks to the enthusiasm of Pierre de Coubertin, who founded the modern Olympic Games.
The mission of the International Council of Amateur Sports is to spread the sport around the world and to guide the sports movement on a voluntary basis, by joining interested parties to this charter.
