The All-Russian public organization Traditional Games and Ethnosport Federation of Russia has been cooperating with the Ethnosport World Society (EWS). Both organizations since their inception in 2012 has been headed by Alexey Kylasov (Russia). They are both network structures, integrating local, regional, national and international associations.
Since 2015 the Traditional Games and Ethnosport Federation of Russia and Ethnosport World Society (EWS) has cooperated with the European Traditional Sport and Games Association (ETSGA).
Originally the Interregional Public Organization "Federation of Rural Games and Ethnosport" was founded in Moscow in 2011, then it was transformed into the All-Russian public organization " Rural Games and Ethnosport Federation of Russia" in 2012, and in 2014 it was renamed as the Traditional Games and Ethnosport Federation of Russia.
The initiative to transform the interregional federation into the all-Russian one was announced at the round table "Ethnosport: a new tool of ethnocultural and youth policy", which was held at the opening of the exhibition "Ethnosport - past and present roots of sport" in the Central Museum of Physical Culture and Sport. Pavel Novikov, Deputy Minister of Sport of the Russian Federation, acted as the moderator of the round table. He welcomed the creation of the first non-governmental organization for the development of traditional games. Founders of the Federation received a welcome from the Commission of the Russian Federation for UNESCO.
