The Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) was created through Republic Act No. 6847 in 1990 to serve as the "sole policy-making and coordinating body of all amateur sports development programs and institutions in the Philippines". Its primary function is "to provide the leadership, formulate the policies and set the priorities and directions of all national sports promotion and development, particularly giving emphasis on grassroots participation". The Commission's Asian Games Task Force is responsible for addressing the needs of the Philippine delegation in the run-up to the 2014 Asian Games.
Relations with the Philippine Olympic Committee
The Philippine Sports Commission Act recognizes the role of the Philippine Olympic Committee as the national Olympic body for the International Olympic Committee. It also recognizes the autonomy of the Philippine Olympic Committee and likewise states that all National Sports Associations shall be Autonomous as well.
The Act designates the Philippine Olympic Committee as primarily responsible for activities related to the country's participation in the Olympic Games (International Olympic Committee), Asian Games (Olympic Council of Asia), Southeast Asian Games (Southeast Asian Games Federation), and other international athletic competitions.
