All-Union federations for technical sports were formed in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s. In 1963 the federations were united under the Bureau of Sports Federations of the All-Union Voluntary Society for Cooperation With the Army, Air Force, and Navy. In 1975 there were more than 5,000 technical sports clubs and 19.6 million people engaged in technical sports. More than 2 million people fulfill rating requirements in technical sports each year.
