THE EFC, FENCING IN EUROPE

The European Fencing Confederation  was founded on 26th October 1991 in Vienna, Austria. Formerly established under the name “Union EuropĂ©enne d’Escrime”, the English name became preponderant.

The international body, charged with the promotion and development of fencing in Europe, regroups 46 member countries. It is the continental confederation with the most active members under the authority of the International Fencing Federation (FIE) . With over 4000 FIE-licenses – (almost three times more than any other continental confederation) the EFC counts the most active fencers all over the world.

Every year the EFC organizes the European Championships, on senior, U23, junior and cadet levels. Other goals are to promote and develop fencing in Europe, to facilitate technical collaboration between the different members, to coordinate and improve the teaching of fencing in Europe and to represent fencing to European authorities.

The EFC established a number of groundbreaking projects for promoting fencing. The cadet circuit started its success-story here before other confederations tried to catch up To facilitate the change from “junior” to “senior” category the EFC established the U23-European Championship and a U23-circuit.
