The Organisation of Sports Federations of Oceania (OSFO) was formally established
in Brisbane, Australia in 2005.
It grew as an entity out of ONOC’s initiative to include regional federations in its Annual General Assembly meetings. It was created to enhance the role of sports in the Oceania region through a collective, united voice. OSFO works to ensure the region’s technical sport expertise will gain recognition and be held in high regard and that its voice will be relevant, effective and influential.
OSFO builds and fosters relationships with ONOC, NOCs, the Pacific Games Council (PGC), governments and other key stakeholders to harness the region’s full sporting potential.
It provides a critical role in the advocacy role in promoting sport and its importance across society, particularly in terms of health and wellbeing and works toward becoming a vital resource for sporting organisations and federations. OSFO currently has a membership of 29 Oceania regional sporting federations.
