Name: 4th CISM Military World Games, Hyderabad 2007
Issue date: 2007 October 14th

India is privileged to host the 4th CISM Military World Games from 14 to 21 October 2007 at Hyderabad and Mumbai under the aegis of conseil International Duo Sport Militaire ('CISM' a French acronym) or International Military Sports Council, HQ based at Brussels.

CISM formed in 1948, used sports to untie the Armed forces of nations. Presently it is composed of 127 member countries which are united through its motto of 'FRIENDSHIP THROUGH SPORTS. CISM organizes over 20 World Championships annually, besides the Military Worlld Games (MWG) held every four years. The first MWG were held in 1995 in Rome, second in Zagreb Croatia 1999, and the third at Catania, Italy in 2003.

During the Afro-Asian Games in 2003 at Hyderabad, visiting CISM officials proposed that India should host the 4th Military World Games 07. The formal signing of Invitation for participating countries, between CISM and Indian Armed Forces took place on 26 September 2006 at Hyderabad.

The Logo and Mascot for MWG 07 was launched on 27 December 2006. 4th MWG 07 being an international sporting event, theme for the logo was taken from the famous five rings of the Olympic Logo depicting five inhabitant continents. The five petals of the Logo depict our national flower Lotus.

The great Indian Bison, being the formation sign of the Hyderabad based Infantry Division of Indian Army, was selected as the Mascot for the Games since the Games are being held at Hyderabad. A majestic Bison, normally imperturbable and always treated with respect in the animal kingdom, possesses immense strength, vigour and doggedness. When provoked, its spurt, ferocity and speed of charge drives terror into the hearts of its opponents. Indian Armed Forces reputation can, thus, be compared with that of a Bison.

The games included in the 4th CISM Miloitary World Games: Boxing, Judo, Sailing, Handball, Football, Track & Field events, Diving, wrestling, Triathion, Parachuting, Volleyball, Mil Pentathion, Swimming and Shooting.
