Armed Forces (sports society)

For other uses, see armed forces (disambiguation).

Sports Klubs of the Soviet Ministry of Defense was a system of sports clubs established at first at Officer's clubs of the Red Army and after World War II reformed into sports clubs of the Army. All the sports clubs were supervised in the Sports Committee of the Ministry of Defence of the USSR and sports committees of military districts and naval fleets.[1] The Army clubs were often abbreviated as SKA and previously as SKVO and DO. The biggest club was the central club located in Moscow, CSKA Moscow.

The society was one of the largest sports societies in the USSR. There was one SKA club in each Military district and naval fleet of the USSR, and a central club - CSKA.[1]
