About Us

The General Association of World Sports Federations (GAWSF) is a non-profit international sports organisation that serves as an umbrella organisation for numerous international, continental, and national sports federations and organisations. It was incorporated on November 20, 2014, in Macau as an international organisation with legal personality and received approval from SportAccord (later changed to GAISF) to use the name SportAccord Asia-Pacific Headquarters, which was changed to General Association of World Sports Federations (GAWSF), after GAISF was dissolved in November 2022, to follow the aims and purposes of the GAISF and to serve and contribute to World sports development.

Currently, GAWSF has more than 370 international, continental, and national member federations and has signed cooperation agreements with many international organisations that are now partners of GAWSF. The GAWSF has established representative offices in China, Hungary, Italy, Kuwait, Korea, Thailand, Philippines,  Hong Kong, and Macau, and its activities cover the world, including sports games, competitions, trainings, forums, and more. The primary aim of GAWSF is to promote and develop sports and sports activities, sports industries and education on a global scale.
