Monday, 22. May 2017

One month to go until the start of the United World Games 2017 and everyone is full of anticipation for the spectacle to begin. We have summed up the most important information for you – here is all you need to know about the UWG 2017.

New participant record & new nations: Chile, Denmark and Morocco

Since their foundation in 2005 the popularity of the United World Games is unbroken, the Games have been growing with every year and 2017 will see another milestone in UWG history – more than 10.000 participants! From the South Africcan Girls Rugbyteam and the Brazilian Handballers to the Mongolian Basketball Nationalteam and the Greek Track & Field athletes - we are happy about each and every single one of them. Once again new nation will be joining the field of participants. This year our first Danish team will compete in Fieldhockey, our Basketball tournament will feature Moroccan athletes and Chile will join the fun in Soccer. We are more than excited to welcome these three countries to the UWG Family.

The registration phase is over and one by one we are working out the tournament schedule for our various sports. You will find all the detailed schedules on our homepage, the first one is already finished: Volleyball
All Coaches will of course be informed as soon as new schedules are completed. Please be aware that the schedules are still subject to change until the start of the tournament, you can always find the latest version right here on the UWG Website.

During the tournament you can also view the results here, they will be updated immediately and continously throughout the competitions. So please make use of the homepage during the event to follow the latest results, standings and schedules.

Accommodation info & Squad lists

We are aware that you would also like to know all the details regarding your accommodation and we would like to ask for a little more of your patience - the accommodation info will be sent out at the beginning of June. If you haven't done so already please also send us a squad list (containing the birth dates of the players) for each participating team. The tournament board will check, print and sign them, so the lists will be ready for you to be picked up upon checking in. Please carry the signed squad list, as well as player's licenses or IDs of all athletes with you to all your games.

Registration & Cancellation policy

As stated registration is now officially closed and we would like to remind you of our cancellation policy:
+ 6 weeks prior to arrival cancellation of the whole team free of charge – after that 100% cancellation fee.
+ 2 weeks prior to arrival cancellation of up to 3 players per team free of charge.
+ Within 2 weeks prior to arrival 100 % cancellation fees will be charged – this also counts for cancellation due to injuries or sickness.

Draw for Opening Ceremony & facebook competition

As you know because of safety reasons not everyone can march in the parade of nations during the grand Opening Ceremony, so the representatives for the respective nations will be drawn by lot. It goes without saying that every registered team will automatically enter the draw, which will probably be held in the second week of June - we will of course keep you posted about this.
We are also having a contest for all participating teams on our Facebook-Page again. Please send us a video of your "team chant" via e-mail or WhatsApp (0043/6504455444). We will post your video and the team with the most "Likes" (until June 16th) will get free United World Games T-Shirts.

We can hardly wait for the start of the UWG 2017 – we'll see you all in June in Klagenfurt! :-)
