200 days to go!

The countdown is on!

With 200 days to go until the opening ceremony of the NatWest International Island Games in Guernsey, the buzz is starting to build, and the organisers are confident that the groundwork is laid for a spectacular event.

The Games will take place 8-14 July 2023. Emma Beardsell, Deputy Games Director, said the planning was coming together well.

“At the same time as the athletes are stepping up their training for the Games, the organisers are very busy heading towards the final sprint. The sporting venues are all ready, and the sports coordinators have done a huge amount of work to ensure that their events run smoothly.”

“We now have a draft events programme written up and the final version will be published in early February. Final allocations and confirmations for accommodation are all in place. The transport team is working on a travel strategy for the week of the Games. There are lots of logistics involved with welcoming 3,000 athletes and team members, and expectations are high, but we are feeling positive about delivering a very special and memorable event.”

“There are so many aspects of the Games to look forward to, and as we mark the 200-day countdown the excitement is palpable, and we cannot wait to welcome the other 23 islands.”

As the clock ticks down on the Games, the organisers have published an end of year review to keep everyone updated on the progress.

Regular updates will be issued from the New Year to keep everyone informed about plans, so please visit this website for further details about the Games.
