[1] Note that national governing bodies are synonymous to national sport organisations and federations. These terms are used differently in distinct nations and regions. National Governing Bodies (NGBs) manage eligibility, rules and championships for individual sports. They sanction competitions in a country and domestic competitions follow NGB rules.
