Marmnamarz

Marmnamarz, published between 1911 and 1914, was the first sport magazine publication in the Ottoman Empire. Published in Armenian language by Shavarsh Krissian (with "Marmnamarz" meaning sport in Armenian) offered an additional incentive for extending the interest towards the sport among the Ottoman Armenians.

Marmnamarz, the "body of national physical training", became the major instrument for the development of sport and athletic life among the Armenian population. This magazine published information about various sport games and their results, as well as published photos of Armenian and foreign athletes and Armenian football teams.[1]

Marmnamarz ceased publication in 1914.
