Frequently Asked Questions

  • 1. What is IBSA?
    Since IBSA was founded in Paris in 1981, we have been in a constant process of evolution to adapt to the ever-changing world of sports for the blind.

    IBSA is registered as a non-profit making, public interest body in Spain, and we are full members of the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), where we are the legitimate representatives of sport for the blind.

  • 3. How does IBSA achieve its goals?
    To achieve our goals, we encourage all blind and visually impaired people to get involved in different sports and physical activities. You too can become a blind athlete and take part in competitions ranging from school sports to elite level championships for the blind and the Paralympic Games.
