Cervia in the Italian region of Emilia Romania with its partner cities Cesena, Cesenatico and Riccione will be the organizer of the CSIT World Sport Games next year from 5 to 10 September 2023 and thus host several thousand participants. 19 official CSIT sports are planned, plus the launch for the CSIT Para Sport section and the opening for children and families with a correspondingly large fringe program. Despite the current extreme price increases and rising inflation and the resulting relocation of the World Games from Rome to Cervia, the CSIT has nevertheless managed to organize affordable Games for the participants and to create the usual high-quality and professional environment. With the best sports facilities, hotels and the accompanying program, as the CSIT members are used to. The Congress saw the first important coordination meetings between the host sports experts and the CSIT TCs.
The current tense situation with high energy costs and prices for accommodation and full board, especially in Rome, have led to a rethink at the CSIT. The CSIT strives to offer Sport for All in an affordable way. The games of the international amateur sports federation will therefore not take place in Rome, but in the region around Cervia on the beautiful Italian Adriatic Sea (Emilia Romagna), as originally planned for the WSG 2021. The CSIT ExCom made this necessary decision at an extraordinary meeting in order to be able to offer on the one hand affordable games and to avoid impending bureaucratic problems and on the other hand to be able to start preparations for the flagship event of CSIT in time.
Cervia with partner city Cesenatico has already successfully hosted the CSIT Single Championships in 2022 and has both the necessary infrastructure and experience to host the World Sports Games (WSG) without any problems. THANK YOU to Cervia for its commitment and for agreeing to host AICS, the Italian member federation of the CSIT and co-organizer of the WSG 2023, at short notice.
The WSG will now be held from September 5 - 10, 2023 in Cervia. The invitation and all information about Cervia Games 2023 will be published soon. Stay tuned!
