Sport and youth as a need of every country have a dominant place in the interests of countries and have a great impact on the daily lives of citizens.

In the field of sports in the Republic of North Macedonia, more than 1,500 sports clubs are active, united in 46 national sports unions, with a large coverage of young people and citizens with sports and sports-recreational activities. A branched and rational system of competitions is realized in all national sports unions, with a large number of participants, coaches, referees, sports physicians and sports employees. 

In addition, significant sports results are being achieved on the international stage, and in parallel with this is the international sports cooperation of national sports unions and their clubs. Athletes from the Republic of  North Macedonia are participants and creators of high sports results at the Balkan Games, European and World Championships and the Olympic Games. 

Our goal is to help and participate in the development of sports, in all its segments, both in a quantitative direction, with a large number of children, youth and citizens, as well as achieving high sports results in the largest world and European competitions.
