The Czech Olympic Committee (CZ NOC) was established on 18 May 1899 with the aim to develop, promote and protect the Olympic movement and its ideals, and ensure the participation of National Team’s athletes to Olympic events. It operates nationally and internationally in accordance with the Olympic Charter and with the applicable laws of the Czech Republic. In its structures, CZ NOC unites sport federations, associations and other sport and physical education organisations of the Czech Republic; however, it is not a confederation.
In its projects, events and activities, it promotes sport as a lifestyle and strives to make it accessible for all. It tries to contribute to building a stronger civil society and reinforcing social cohesion, including through the promotion of Olympic values. Equal Opportunities Commission of the Czech Olympic Committee coordinates its activities pertaining to equal opportunities and gender equality.
