The ATFS Annual
The International Track and Field Annual

The first edition of the A.T.F.S. Annual, titled "The 1951 A.T.F.S. International Athletic Annual" was produced by joint editors Fulvio Regli and Dr. Roberto Quercetani and published by Tipografia "La Commerciale" SA, Lugano, in Switzerland.

Thru the years various members of the A.T.F.S. have taken on the onerous task of editing the yearly publication.

In 1985, renowned British statistician and broadcaster Peter Matthews took over the editing and assumed management of the publication from the A.T.F.S., renaming it The International Track and Field Annual.  Many A.T.F.S. members still contribute to each years publication.

The latest edition, "Athletics 2019, The International Track and Field Annual" is available from the publisher as follows:
