FEI suspends SportAccord membership

The FEI Executive Board has suspended the Federation’s membership with SportAccord, the union of Olympic, non-Olympic international sports federations and organisers of international sporting events, with immediate effect.

“SportAccord’s President Marius Vizer has been informed of the FEI Executive Board’s decision,” FEI President Ingmar De Vos said.

“The FEI, alongside many other International Sports Federations and the Association of Summer Olympic International Sports Federations will seek full clarity regarding SportAccord’s role and mission, including a review of SportAccord’s governance and management,” he concluded.

The FEI’s membership with SportAccord will be discussed by the FEI Bureau at its in-person meeting on 9 June.
