INSTITUTIONAL ASPECTS OF THE IFBB
The IFBB was founded by brothers Joe and Ben Weider in 1946 in Montreal, Canada.
On December 30th, 1969, was constituted the International Federation of Bodybuilders Incorporated (Federation Internationale des Culturistes Incorporée), as a non profit organization under the Canadian laws. This was done under the guidance of Oscar State, OBE (1911-1984), a world-renowned sports official, who advised Ben Weider that in order for the IFBB and the sport to achieve legitimacy and to be recognized by the General Association of International Sports Federations, it must be set up as a legal entity with a constitution and rules.
After the election of Mr Rafael Santonja as IFBB President in Ostrava; on July 6th 2007, was agreed, in a Joint Declarations signed by Ben Weider and Rafael Santonja, the liquidation and dissolution of the International Federation of Bodybuilders Incorporated, deciding the pass of the balance accounts to the new non profit association that was going to be built in Spain, to follow as universal successor of the IFBB activities.
On September 14th 2007 was constituted in Spain the "Asociación-Federación Internacional de Fisicoculturismo y Fitness", adopting the shape of a non profit association.
