The detailed schedule for The World Games 2022 in Birmingham, USA is now online. The International World Games Association has published the detailed programme for the 11th edition of the Games, taking place from 7 to 17 July 2022.
On the ten competition days, starting the day after the opening ceremony in the new Protective Stadium, more than 3,600 athletes will compete in 34 sports. In a total of 223 medal events the world’s best athletes in their specific disciplines will strive for the Gold of The World Games. The Birmingham Organising Committee (BOC) expects participants from more than 100 nations. Tickets for the individual competitions are now available at: twg2022.com/tickets/
For the first time in the 40 years of history of The World Games, there is no distinction between official sports and invitational sports; all 34 sports are included in the programme. This applies for the sports that were proposed by the BOC: Flag Football, Low Point Wheelchair Rugby, Duathlon and Wushu. For the first time at The World Games, a para-sport is part of the official programme; Wheelchair Rugby demonstrates the inclusiveness of the event.
Ten sports start on the first day of competition, Friday 8 July, with medal decisions in DanceSport, Finswimming and Powerlifting among others. The last awards, on Sunday 17 July, will include medals in Muaythai, Korfball, Canoe Polo and Squash.
