History of the SFISM

On 3 March 1944, the Swiss Federal Council authorized the then Federal Military Department (EMD) to set up a school for gymnastics and sport in Magglingen. The decision to make Magglingen the location for the school marked the start of a pioneering development that was to prove decisive for sport in Switzerland.
