3rd World Company Sport Games
We are proud to host the third edition of the World Company Sport Games that will take place in Athens, Greece from 17th to 21st June 2020!
The Company Sport’s heart will be beating in Athens uniting companies and people from 5 continents, demonstrating in the process the beneficial effects of company sport, whilst carrying a strong message to the whole world:
“Company sport is not just a sport event: It’s a need!”
The World Company Sport Games are more than a sporting competition, they are a chance to bring together working people from across the globe demonstrating the virtues of company sport. Open to all levels and abilities and for organisations of all sizes, forms and activities, the Games represent the largest, most inclusive sporting event dedicated to employees.
Following two successful editions of the World Company Sport Games in 2016 and 2018, in Palma de Mallorca and La Baule respectively that welcomed thousands of athletes from across the world, Athens is ready to welcome back old companies and competitors and inspire new ones to also partake in this vibrant event.
28 Sport Disciplines
Men and women will have the opportunity to compete in a diverse range of sports, sharing values that are inherent in both the sports and work environment: teamwork, communication and commitment.
Through this multi-sport event that spans across multiple days, the participants will have the chance to form bonds of friendship both within and outside their work circle in an environment that strengthens their physical and mental well-being, bolsters employees’ engagement and organisational culture.
This year, we are providing an expanded range of sports, with 28 disciplines! The new sport disciplines offered include arm wrestling, kettlebell and squash ensuring that there is something for everyone.
Participants will have the opportunity to compete at the unique facilities of the Olympic Athletic Center of Athens and at other specially selected athletic venues.
The staging of this event is a living testament to the belief and commitment in the idea of Company Sport by both the World Federation for Company Sport and the Hellenic Organisation for Company Sport and Health.
