As well as being a fun game and football training aid, practised by some of the biggest players and teams in world football, Teqball is a sport in its own right, governed by the Fédération Internationale de Teqball (FITEQ), which was founded in 2017. Based in Lausanne, Switzerland, FITEQ’S primary mission is to introduce and develop the sport globally, establish national federations and unite the international Teqball community. FITEQ organised the sport’s first World Cup in Hungary in 2017 and staged the second edition in Reims, France, in October 2018. Co-founders, Gábor Borsányi, György Gattyán and Viktor Huszár, serve as the FITEQ president and vice-presidents respectively. Teqball became the world’s fastest recognised sport in August 2018 when FITEQ was officially recognised by the Olympic Committee of Asia and in 2019 it was officially recognised by the Association of National Olympic Committees of Africa (ANOCA). FITEQ’s long-term goal is to see Teqball develop into an Olympic sport.
