We are on Tour!

Connecting young people through sport! That's what the United World Games stand for and that's what we want to communicate with our roadshows around the world. Our goal is it to bring as many people and as many different countries to Klagenfurt as possible, bringing youth together through sports. With that mission in mind we toured several different countries in the last couple of months.

After finishing last month with a tour through New Zealand, we started this month with China and Japan, meeting various old and new friends. Our friends from the YK Pao School in Shanghai are already training for their participation in 2019, among other sports they are planning to compete in our newly added sport: Ultimate Frisbee. Besides visiting familiar faces in China, we had the chance to meet new interested parties in Japan and China, who we will hopefully see in Klagenfurt in 2019.

During the same time members of our team toured Germany and the Czech Republic, meeting many promising clubs. Our tour through southern Germany was very successful, since they showed a high interest in joining the UWG. We also went to visit our old friends and former basketball champions at the UWG, BA Grizzlies Plzen, in the Czech Republic. They are a young club with great values, enthusiastic kids, a supportive surrounding and top-class coaching, and we are proud that they are part of the UWG family.

To not forget the southern continent, we are spreading the word in Kenya right now. The schools down there are thrilled by the concept and are keen to participate at the UWG in 2019.

Even though these last Roadshows were a success, there is no time to rest. The UWG family is spreading out again next week to visit clubs in the Netherlands and Austria, to present the UWG and its philosophy.

Now it is important to nurse all these new connections and friendships to assure their motivation and participation at the UGW in Klagenfurt. We are excited to welcome old and new friends in Klagenfurt next year and further spread our motto:

One World – A Thousand Friends!
