The vision is an overall goal statement that indicates the direction in which an organization is heading. It is an inspirational and clearly stated ambition for the future that puts everyone’s effort in alignment.
Our vision is for Mixed Martial Arts to be recognized as a sport through the full membership of IMMAF in SportAccord and ultimately become an Olympic sport.
Becoming an Olympic sport is the ultimate achievement and highest formal recognition possible for any sport. Hence that is what the IMMAF will strive towards. A membership in SportAccord is in itself a sizeable achievement that will provide MMA with a strong platform as well as take the sport one step closer to gaining Olympic status. We see that the challenges for MMA are great today, but so are the opportunities, and the IMMAF should not have any lesser ambition for MMA than this. When the IMMAF formulates goals, strategies and tactics over the coming years they will need to pass the test – will this be an instrument in fulfilling the organization’s vision?
