City Games™ are a sport and entertainment event organized during summer months with the goal of broadening the tourist offer and promoting companionship between cities and countries.
City Games™ are organized as a series of competitions beetween teams that are representatives of their cities. Due to its diversity, the project is intended to suit all generations.
After eight years project gained more and more popularity on the international scene, City Games™ is just about to start the fresh new season – already the 9th one. The big change of competition format is that national champions from 2018 and 2019 will qualify for the big international final, which will be held in Luxembourg in year 2020. The great spectacle will be covered into six TV shows and broadcasted to several European countries. The participation teams will come from 16 different countries which will raise City Games to the level of famous TV game show “Jeux Sans Frontières” (Games Without Borders).
Besides big format change City Games is also preparing many novelties. One of the most important one is the number of the players in a team which will decrease on 6 players – at least 2 of them have to be women. The most spectacular change which will be presented through this season, especially for those who are regular part of City Games for years, is the very new and refreshing scenography. It will lead us to transformation of the existing games and even bring to us completely new one. Let the rest remain secret, waiting for you to reveal it!

WHAT GAMES ARE WE PLAYING?
Various games and disciplines are the foundation of this project. They are designed with purpose to entertain, educate and inspire as well as to promote common values and respect different traditions. They are also designed to be modern and attractive for competitors and event audience.
WHERE ARE WE PLAYING?
At the very beginning City Games™ mainly used seaside promenades (rivas) as sporting arenas. However, as the project grew, so did the challenges as to where all these games can take place.
So in addition to rivas, the games are also being organized in indoor and outdoor swimming pools as well as on lakes.
Almost every town has a special place suitable for our caravan to disembark and prepare a City Games™ arena. Season after season we are discovering new sites and places for the games. We can proudly say that we are very adoptable and have tons of expirience in locations scouting.
During the past several years City Games™ were organized 278 times in more than 100 different locations!
72 days on tour
50 000 visitors
1 500 competitors
