The Alliance Games Federation is the main international sports governing body of the Alliance of Independent Nations. It was established in 2009 to take over the running of the Alliance's main sporting competitions and festivals of sport. Its main activities tasked to it are the organisation and running of the Alliance Summer Games (ASG) and the Alliance Winter Games (AWG). It also gives accreditation to all Alliance endorsed sports leagues and sanctions all new sports applying to be competitive sports at either the ASG or AWG. Its main duties also include choosing the Host of the AGF session which decides the Host of the next Alliance Summer or Winter Games.
The Alliance Games Federation (AGF) is governed as a wholly autonomous agency within the Alliance Ministry for Culture, Arts and Sports and as such performs all sports related activities of the Ministry. The AGF is operated by a committee with its main executive positions being the AGF Commissioner and the AGF Deputy Commissioner. All decisions of the AGF are autonomous of the Ministry and can only be challenged in the Alliance Parliament by a vote of no confidence in the Commissioner of the AGF. Selection to the main committee of the AGF happens periodically and members selected usually come from within the Alliance Games Federation family through National representatives of Alliance Games Associations (Alliance equivalent of NSCs - National Simlympic Committees)
The AGF is governed by the Alliance Charter which in many respects up holds similar ideals as the Olympic Charter.
Currently there are seven members of the AGF main committee, with currently 3 vacancies which will be filled at the next AGF session.
AGF sessions are held twice a year to select the Host City for the ASG and AWG and are the main deliberative body of the AGF.
