FIRA Regional Chapters

A sufficiently large number of teams, researchers and teachers from any nation, group of nations, or nation-sized region (henceforth “region”) with significant past and current FIRA participation is invited to form a “FIRA Regional Chapters.” 

The purposes of Regional chapters are to 

  1. Act as communication link between FIRA participants in their region and FIRA Executive Committee. This includes distributing information from FIRA Executive Committee to the FIRA participants in their area of influence as well as bringing concerns and issues in their area to the attention of the FIRA Executive Committee,

  2. Promote FIRA and its associated events in their area,

  3.  Support existing participants and recruit new ones,

  4. Organize local FIRA events in their region

  5. Select teams for participation at the FIRA Robot World Cup,

  6. Deal with organizational matters (e.g., travel, registration, payment of fees, and accommodation) for the participants from their region)

  7. Maintain an English website to be linked to the main FIRA website describing the FIRA activities in your region.

Welcome to the Federation of International Robot-Sport Association

Robot soccer can be portrayed as a competition of advanced robot technology within a confined space. It offers a challenging arena to the young generation and researchers working with autonomous mobile robotic systems. It is hoped that FIRA’s flagship event, called the FIRA Robot World Cup (or the FIRA Cup in short), which started in 1996, together with many other FIRA events, will help generate interests in robotics in the young minds.

Through these events, FIRA hopes to help them better understand and appreciate, with interests, the scientific concepts and technological developments involved. FIRA believes that some of these interests will fuel scientific and engineering skills that ultimately develop into research outcomes to serve mankind in a variety of ways.

Ever since its establishment, FIRA has had venues for its annual FIRA Cup in Australia, Brazil, China, France and Korea. Making progress over successive years since 1996, FIRA Cup has now attained world recognition as a robot festival.
