How FISA Works

Sports governing bodies play a fundamental role in society and therefore adherence to good governance principles is fundamental for the fulfilment of their statutory objectives and broader social mission. As Subbuteo’s world governing body, FISA is firmly committed to the principles of good governance, transparency and zero tolerance towards any wrongdoing.

Independent Ethics Committee

The independent Ethics Committee is one of FISA’s judicial bodies. It is primarily responsible for investigating possible infringements of the FISA Code of Ethics. Since 2017, it has been divided into two separate chambers – the investigatory chamber and the adjudicatory chamber.

Reporting Mechanism

FISA has implemented a regulatory framework which is intended to ensure that all statutory rules, rules of conduct and internal guidelines of our organisation are respected and complied with. In this context, and in particular as a measure to aid in prevention, FISA has issued, among others, the FISA Code of Conduct and the FISA Code of Ethics.

There is no place for doping in sport today and FISA is continuously striving to keep Subbuteo free from doping and lead by example to safeguard the future success and sustainability of Subbuteo around the world. 

  • Anti-Doping


Every year, FISA files a financial statement in line with the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), which must be approved by an auditing firm. The report must then receive the approval of FISA’s Financial Committee, the FISA Council and, finally, the FISA Congress.

Match Agents

Agents who arrange matches between teams belonging to different confederations must be in possession of a licence issued by FISA.

The FISA Licence to arrange matches confers upon the holder the exclusive right to arrange friendly matches or tournaments between national teams or clubs from different confederations.
