A total of 30 official sports will be showcased at the multi-sport event, to be held from 15 to 25 July 2021 in Birmingham, Alabama. Information regarding to disciplines from each sport that will feature in the Games will be published later this year.

IWGA President José Perurena says: “I’m sure this programme will be attractive for spectators, both on site and on screen. It strikes a good balance between team and individual sports, and demands widely varying skills such as strength, precision, control, artistry, endurance, courage and agility. We took account of all the reports on last year’s Wroclaw Games and the performance of our various federations. Now we have to fine tune the specific events in association with our federations. We’re all set for great Games in Birmingham 2021.”
