The FNASS was created in 1992 thanks to the initiative of several players’ unions, including soccer, tennis, and cycling. It was Alain GIRESSE who was elected as the first President of the FNASS.
Today, in 2022, eight unions are now members of the FNASS, including the SNB.
The initial objectives of the FNASS are to help salaried sportsmen and women of all disciplines with a view to organizing their unions and enabling them to resolve their common problems, to make their demands succeed and to resolve the difficulties specific to their professional branch.
Since its creation, the FNASS has been very strongly involved in issues affecting athletes such as health, training and retraining, regulation, and protection of the integrity of competitions, and more generally the representation of its members within their collective agreements.
It is above all the second largest trade union organization in the sports sector, representing 36.07% of the votes.
