The 36th FIMS World Congress of Sports Medicine postponed to 2021

It will be held from 23 to 26 September 2021 in Athens, Greece


Dear Colleagues, 

We would like to inform you about an important change regarding the 36th FIMS World Congress of Sports Medicine, originally planned to take place in Athens, Greece, this year in September. Due to the unfortunate developments of COVID-19 pandemic worldwide  and the careful review of  the security issues, the Organising Committee proposed the FIMS World Congress 2020 postponement to 23-26 September 2021. This proposal has been officially approved by the FIMS Executive Committee on 20 April 2020.


The International Federation of Sport Medicine would like to warmly thank the Sports Medicine Association of Greece for their extraordinary work and accomplishments during the preparations of the Congress and Scientific Programme so far and for their committment to plan the congress in the best conditions of safety and participation.


We are very much looking forward to seeing you soon in Athens next year. 


My very best regards,


Prof. Fabio Pigozzi MD, PhD

FIMS President
