It has been a big year for The World Games 2021 in Birmingham. The Birmingham Organising Committee has been busy with preparations for the Games, sharing news and updates and educating fans all over the world about the big event due in just three short years. As the New Year approaches, there is much to look forward to on the Road to Birmingham in 2019, including big news and surprises for fans of The World Games around the globe.
In early 2019 the official sport venues for The World Games 2021 will be announced, which will include more than 20 locations in and around the metro Birmingham area.
Birmingham has also been hard at work creating a programme to bring The World Games into local elementary and middle schools, and students and teachers will start to be exposed to the sports and countries of The World Games in summer 2019.
Perhaps most exciting, Birmingham will host its first test event in summer 2019, bringing the first real taste of The World Games to the city! It will also serve as an opportunity for the Birmingham Organising Committee to have a trial run for things like venue planning, food service, athlete housing, media operations and more. Look for more details on the test event in early 2019!
Next year will also mark the announcement of the official mascot of The World Games 2021 and the unveiling of a new, interactive exhibit designed to engage and educate the Birmingham community. While details on both projects are still top secret, the Birmingham Organising Committee is excited to share them both with the world!
While 2018 was an incredible year for Birmingham, there are even more great things on the horizon for 2019. Keep up with all of the news, updates and details by visiting TheWorldGames2021.com,or by following on Facebook, Twitterand Instagram.
