The World of UWG

The UNITED WORLD GAMES - more than just an average tournament

The United World Games are Europe's finest youth sporting event. Pulsating tournaments, a great atmosphere and 100% fun - thousands of young athletes from all over the world gather in Klagenfurt, Austria, every year to celebrate their common passion about sports, make new friends and share unforgettable memories. Sport unites, even though skin color, origin and religion of our participants might differ. The UWG are an international festival of cultural exchange where all participants collectively commemorate and demonstrate the power of sports to build bridges over cultural barriers, while having the chance to discover the host city Klagenfurt, capital of Carinthia, Austria's southernmost province.
