The year 2017 starts with a milestone for international Fistball. The state of Austria will provide a substantial financial subsidy to run the new IFA office in Linz (Austria). This gave us the opportunity to hire Mr. Christoph Oberlehner as full-time IFA Administrative Director starting from January 2017. With his experience in sport management and his contribution at the great Fistball EURO 2016 as marketing director, he can help our sport to reach the goals regarding IOC Recognition and international development.
