The Bavarian State Sports Association e. V. (BLSV) is the umbrella organization of sports clubs and specialist sports associations in Bavaria and as such a member of the German Olympic Sports Confederation (DOSB) . The BLSV has over 11,000 associations with more than 4.5 million members (as of the end of 2017). Over 90,700 instructors and around 300,000 volunteers make the BLSV and its 56 sports associations (as of January 2018) the largest personal association in Bavaria and the second largest state sports association after North Rhine-Westphalia. The seat of the association is the House of Sports at Georg-Brauchle-Ring 93 in Munich .


The purpose of the association is to maintain and promote sport. (Articles of Association §2)


The association is structured (Articles of Association I §2 Paragraph 3)

a) regionally in sports districts and sports circles, which basically correspond to the political districts and districts of the Free State of Bavaria,

b) by type of sport.


The BLSV was founded on July 18, 1945. The current BLSV President has been Jörg Ammon since June 9, 2018. On the first regular association day on 2/3 August 1947, the original statute was approved. At that time the idea was followed "to join together voluntarily in the community for the best of physical exercises". This basic idea has been retained. The publication organ of the BLSV is the weekly magazine bayernsport .

A special feature in Bavaria is that, unlike other federal states , the Bavarian Sport Schützenbund is not a member of the state sports association , but acts as an independent umbrella organization. In 2013, for the first time in 15 years, the BLSV took up a new professional association, the Unicycle Association of Bavaria. The application for admission submitted in 2009 was originally rejected in 2011, despite the admission requirements being met. After several years of legal dispute, the Munich Higher Regional Court decided on June 20, 2013 that the BLSV must accept the unicycling association as the 54th professional association. In accordance with Section 12 of the BLSV Statutes and Section 4 (2a) of the Admission Regulations, the meeting of the BLSV Association Committee on November 25, 2017 initiated the admission of three further sports associations to the BLSV: the Floorball Association Bavaria (FVB) the Bavarian Cricket Association (BCV) and the Cheerleading and Cheerdance Association Bavaria (CCVBy).

The association awarded the Bavarian Sports Achievement Badge in three stages from 1948 to the end of 2012 . After the sports badge reform of the DOSB, it has been possible since 2013 to use the German sports badge , which is uniform for all of Germany .
