IAAF HeadquartersThe Principality of Monaco has been home to the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) since October 1993. After more than 30 years in Sweden (1912-1946) and over 40 years in England (1946-1993), the IAAF moved to Southern Europe following a decision taken at the XXXIX Congress in August 1993 in Stuttgart.
The new headquarters were officially inaugurated on June 10, 1994. Many sporting personalities, including Juan Antonio Samaranch, President of the IOC, Carl Lewis, multiple World and Olympic champion, and Hereditary Prince Albert of Monaco, attended the opening ceremony and the President of the IAAF, Dr. Primo Nebiolo, declared: "After 82 years, the IAAF has finally found its true home. Monaco has welcomed us with open arms and I hope that this city will become the city of Athletics for the whole international sporting community."
In Monaco, the IAAF is housed in two buildings: the Villa Miraflores for the executive offices of the President, the General Secretary, and the General Secretariat, is located on the Avenue St Michel in the centre of Monte Carlo. The General Secretariat co-ordinates and advises on the activities of the Association.
The operational headquarters is situated at 17, Rue Princesse Florestine near the port.
The seven other IAAF Departments are Broadcasting, Communications, Corporate Services, Events & Competitions, Marketing, Medical & Anti-Doping and Member Services.
The IAAF has a staff of 70 from 13 different nations.
