The European Federation of Touch (EFT) was recognised formally at the FIT AGM at theTouch World Cup in Edinburgh last July 2011.
With this initiative, part of the Regional Federation development plan conducted by FIT, it is another phase of the growth and development of FIT and the sport of Touch in Europe, showing in particular the maturity of the sport and the National Touch Association's in the European region.
EFT is a separate legal entity providing limited legal liability for its members and the ability to contract in its own right (for example, enter into funding agreements with the EU).
EFT will focus on operational matters to assist FIT with the development and delivery of the sport of Touch in Europe where it will enforce all FIT constitutional requirements and rules and regulations.
This is an opportunity for European countries to develop the sport of Touch in the same direction, sharing the same values while keeping their cultural diversity and tradition.
