Homepage: http://www.fiboules.org/

The Fédération International de Boules (FIB) prides itself in being the first ever world bocce organization. Founded in April 14, 1946 by charter Federation members France, Switzerland, Italy, and Monaco, FIB aims to standardize the rules of the game, promote international competition, and work towards the admission of bocce into the Olympic Games. A year after its foundation, FIB held the first world team championship in Geneva, under the FIB rules of play (referred to as “volo”) wherein only the metal balls are used. To date, FIB has more than 30 member nations, representing every continent.
