The International Boxing Association (AIBA) launched the #AIBAFamily campaign in April 2017 as part of the organisation attempts to help bring all 203 of its National Federations (NFs) together in a shared commitment to the sport leading up to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

The campaign includes far-reaching educational programmes directed at all levels of boxing.

Emphasis is being placed on ethics and behaviour as well as taking a look back at the legends past and present that have been a central part of the AIBA story.

#AIBAFamily unites its members and embraces the progress of those athletes who have left an indelible mark on the AIBA Open Boxing (AOB) and World Series of Boxing (WSB) competitions over the years.

The campaign ensures that AIBA continues to be the only organisation that provides its boxers, coaches, R&Js and technical staff with tangible support and education throughout the development of their careers.
