 The French Gymnastics and Sports Federation of Patronages ( FGSPF ) is a French sports sports federation founded in Paris in 1898 by Dr. Paul Michaux under the provisional name of the Union of Gymnastics and Military Training Societies of Patronages and Works of France. Having had to adopt temporarily, in 1901, the title of Federation of Catholic Gymnastics Societies, it takes its final name in 1903. It welcomes the women's organization of the female Sports Ray during the Occupation and merges definitively with it in 1947 to become the Sports Federation of France then the Sports and Cultural Federation of France in 1968.
