THE WORLD GAMES IN BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA, MOVES TO JULY 2022 03/04/2020


The International World Games Association (IWGA) and Birmingham Organising Committee (BOC) have agreed to postpone the 11th edition of The World Games until 7th to 17th July 2022.

The 11th edition of The World Games had originally been planned to take place from 15–25 July, 2021.

The International Olympic Committee’s (IOC) decision to move the Tokyo Olympic Games to July 2021 made a significant impact on the planning of The World Games in Birmingham, Alabama. Keeping to the original dates in July 2021 would have meant excluding many athletes and officials involved in the Olympics, and would have led to a potential reduction in public and media interest.

The WDSF has a full sports program in the World Games including acrobatic rock´n´roll, breaking, latin and standard – and it fully supports delaying The Games. The WDSF will work closely with all parties involved in order to make the 2022 edition of the World Games a success with the DanceSport competitions.
