The registration of international guests is very satisfying so far. The number of participants is as high as at the last Games 2015 in Lignano. Nevertheless, the gate for Riga 2017 is closing. The definitive registration deadline for the WSG is 7th of May. If you want to join the Games , please use the online-registration-platform „Sportcare-Nesea“.
You are only finally registered, if all financial obligations are fullfilled with May 7th! Not respecting this deadline will cause 30% of penalty fees on all costs according to CSIT articles!
We strongly recommend: Don´t forget to upload your pictures into the platform due to following reasons: 1 - You can shorten your waiting time at the Games Accreditation Center; 2 – You can avoid misuse due to security reasons and the high security standard in Latvia.
