British Olympic Association (BOA)

Web Address:

The British Olympic Association (BOA) is the National Olympic Committee (NOC) for Great Britain and Northern Ireland.  The BOA’s principle role is to prepare and lead the nation’s finest athletes at the summer, winter and youth Olympic Games.

The University of East London was chosen to host the historical archive and book collection of the BOA in the run up to the 2012 London Olympic Games.  Containing material relating to the history and work of the Association from 1906-2009, it notably includes records concerning the organization of the 1908 and 1948 London Olympic Games. The collection is open to researchers, however some sections are still undergoing cataloguing. Access is by appointment only, please contact the Archives for further information.

A detailed catalogue of the collection can be found on Archives Hub.

Descriptions for all current UEL Archival Collections can be found on both the Archives Hub and AIM25 websites.
