The World Games, first held in 1981, are an international multi-sport event, meant for sports or disciplines that are not in the Olympic Games. The World Games are organised and governed by the International World Games Association (IWGA) and recognised by the International Olympic Committee (IOC). The World Games are held every four years, one year after the Summer Olympic Games. The next host city will be Birmingham (Alabama), USA in July 2022 (new dates).
