The French Athletics Federation (French: Fédération française d'athlétisme - FFA), is the governing body for the sport of athletics in France.


FFA is the heir to the Union des Sociétés Françaises de Sports Athlétiques (USFSA), founded November 20, 1887. In 1912, a French delegation was present at the conference in Stockholm that founded the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) with 17 national federations.[1]


The French Athletics Federation is governed by a president and seven vice-presidents, a general secretary, and a general treasurer.



France's kits are supplied by Asics.
