About the Union


International Crossbow Sport Since 1956


To the official website of the International Crossbow-shooting Union IAU, the world governing body for Match and Field crossbow shooting. IAU Crossbow shooting is a fascinating and technically challenging multi-disciplined target sport. It’s also a sport with a rich history and traditions which has roots in many different cultures around the world. The IAU is lead by the members of the Executive Committee who are responsible for the overall management of our organization. We work together as a team, committed to moving the IAU forward in the true spirit of international sport. Our Executive Committee members come from different backgrounds in a diverse range of professional and sporting disciplines. The IAU’s Executive team is an international group with members located in Europe and Asia. We use the power of the internet to communicate with each other, our member organizations and active crossbow sports enthusiasts all around the world.

On this website you will find information about the IAU’s crossbow shooting disciplines, our international championships programme and details of how our organization works. If you are new to this sport you are very welcome to ask us questions – and to become an active member of the IAU Crossbow-sporting community. I hope that you find our website both interesting and informative.
