 It owes its name to the official agreement decreed in Law No. 128 of the Executive Committee of the Council of Ministers on January 26, 1985, to celebrate every November 19 the Day of Physical Culture and Sport, taking into account that this day in 1961 was held the First Plenary of Volunteer Correspondents of INDER. The work of the volunteer correspondents was highlighted by the Commander in Chief, Fidel Castro Ruz, in the closing speech of that congress, for which this day was chosen as a deserved recognition of the work carried out by them in the sphere of sport in the first years of the Revolution. It was celebrated for the first time on November 16 of the same year, with a lucid sporting spectacle in the Capitán San Luis Stadium in the city of Pinar del Río.
