IOC (International Olympic Committee) – Football

The IOC was created on June 23, 1894; the first Olympic Games of the modern era opened in Athens on April 6, 1896; and the Olympic Movement has not stopped growing ever since.  When he announced in Paris, on a winter’s evening in 1892, the forthcoming re-establishment of the Olympic Games, Pierre de Coubertin was applauded, but nobody at the time imagined the scale of the project that reviving the ancient Olympic Games, appointing a committee in charge of organising them and creating an international movement would entail.
