The Finnish Olympic Committee was founded in Helsinki on the 2nd of December, 1907. It was accepted as a member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) at the IOC’s 9th Session in Haag, Holland.

Finnish physical activity and sport have experienced a major change from the beginning of 2017, when the Finnish Olympic Committee starts building the content and practices of Finnish physical activity and sport culture, from elite sport to activating the Finnish people.

The Finnish Olympic Committee has 85 member associations. The President of the Board is Mr. Timo Ritakallio (since 26 November 2016), and the Secretary General is Mr. Mikko Salonen.
