Member Application Form

CONIA offers free membership to sports organisations and individual athletes representing un- or partially recognised nations, territories and peoples, and ethnic or cultural minorities.

Association Members represent communities that define themselves through a unique and distinct culture, language, historical homeland or geographical location and that cannot ordinarily participate in large international sporting events under their own name, flag or banner.

Association In Formation: even if your community does not have a fully established association yet, but is planning or hoping to set one up, you can already apply for membership.

Athlete Members are individual athletes coming from (or tracing their heritage to) current or potential member communities that don’t have an association yet.

Membership is free of charge and there is no member registration fee.

Only fields marked in BOLD are required to be filled out. However, the more information you provide, the easier it will be for us to assist you. The information you provide in this form will be treated with confidentiality. CONIA will not make any of this information public without your explicit consent or unless otherwise stated.
