The Organising Committee of the World Masters Games (WMG) 2021 Kansai has decided to postpone the Games by one year (to be held in May 2022) and continued to discuss the schedule with the International Masters Games Association (IMGA) in order to realize the philosophy and purpose of the Games in a complete form based on the situation of this COVID-19 pandemic, as announced on the Games website and other websites until today.

The IMGA has approved the WMG2021 Kansai Organising Committees’ proposal and decided that the Games to be held from Friday, 13th May to Sunday, 29th May 2022. We are delighted to announce that the dates have been approved and finalized.

We would like to express our sincere appreciation for being patient to those who are expected to participate, those who have applied for volunteering, and related organizations such as host municipalities, co-organizers, supporting organizations, Sports federations and sponsoring companies.

We will secure and take over the participation registrations and volunteer registration which have already entered without any change from our previous guidance. In addition, since the process of renewing the Sports Information guide which determine competition dates and venues also to maintenance/adjust systems etc. may take time, we will announce promptly on the Games website as soon as the date for new entry have been decided.

We will continue to prepare thoroughly in order to create a wonderful Games that everyone can enjoy. Thank you for your understanding.
