About the IFP

Since its creation in Lausanne, Switzerland, in April of 2009, the International Federation of Poker (IFP) has grown in scope and stature to become poker's official governing body.
Having evolved from its original seven member nations to more than 40 federations from five different continents, the IFP is now the hub for a thriving world poker community.
Beyond its role in organizing major international tournaments, the IFP will compile international rankings with separate national classifications and present players from around the world with the chance to "Outskill the World," and compete at The Table in 2012.
While the size and scope of the IFP keeps expanding, the goal remains the same: to promote poker and it's match variation as a mind sport, without any discrimination as to race, sex, creed, or disability; and to reinforce the element of skill involved, as well as the talent and determination required to succeed.
