Federation of International Robot-soccer Association (
FIRA) was established on June 5, 1997 during the micro-robot soccer tournament (MiroSot'97) held at KAIST in Daejeon, Korea. 

FIRA Robot World Cup is held every year on global-scale. FIRA Robot World Congress is held along with FIRA Cup, where all participating teams will submit and present papers on their robots and schemes for sharing the expertise and technology for building the soccer robots.

Robot Olympiad' is a science, technology and educational event aimed at offering our promising youngsters an opportunity to expand their horizons by introducing them up-to-date technology.

Robot technology is widely recognized as one of the key technologies for the 21st century, with immense opportunities for further growth. Not unexpectedly, robot is one of the most popular items among young people. I believe that the Robot Olympiad provides the world stage for our youths to build their dreams of becoming creative robotics scientists of the future.
