Completely dedicated to boxing!
Switzerland has been home to the International Boxing Association (AIBA) since 2002. After several years in London (1946-1974), Moscow (1974-1978), Creskill (1978-1987), Berlin, and Atlanta, the AIBA Headquarters moved to Lausanne (Switzerland) where the International Olympic Committee has its own headquarters. Lausanne is the first city to host permanently an AIBA headquarters not linked with the home country of the AIBA Secretary General.
After a few years at Avenue de la Gare in Lausanne, AIBA moved in August to the new home dedicated to sport: the House of International Sport (MSI) next to the Lake of Geneva in Lausanne. This new location is more adapted to AIBA's needs. Ideally located between the IOC and the Olympic Museum, the AIBA headquarters is not far from the main motorway and the Lausanne city centre. The Geneva International Airport is also only 30 minutes away. AIBA is also taking advantage of the transfer of knowledge between itself and the other federations which have joined the MSI.
Transparency and efficiency are the two key ingredients in the workings of the Finance Department for 2007 and beyond. Its main mission is to ensure accounting is done according to AIBA Financial Regulations and Swiss accounting rules whilst meeting the highest quality standard.
