The 5th CSIT World Sports Games (WSG) will be held from 13th to 18th June, 2017 in Riga, the modern and pulsing capital of Latvia. Almost 4000 participants are registered for the WSG what will turn Riga into a colourful city with international flair for the period of one week. The Riga Organising Committee has done an excellent job. All VENUES are ready, what means, Riga is ready for the CSIT WSG 2017 and the big CSIT family. The detailed sports program will be published soon on the official website.
The opening ceremony for 5th CSIT World Sports Games 2017 with many national and international guests will be held on the 13th of June at 8 p.m. in the "Skonto Stadium" in Riga. All participating organisations and starters will enter the stadium in a big parade just like at the Olympic Games. The parade in Riga will start at 6.30 p.m. from the Riga "Esplanade" (meeting point around Brivibas and Kalpaka streets) leading to the Skonto-Stadium. Detailed information about the opening ceremony will be available on the platform very soon!
The gate for Riga 2017 is closed! The definitive registration deadline for the WSG was 7th of May. According to an official statement of the Latvian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, applying for visas is not possible anymore due to administrative reasons. This means, that the time-period between visa application and obtaining is too short until the start of the Games on June 13th.
For that reason we recommend all still interested, but unsuccessful organisations and people to initiate their preparations for the World Sports Games 2019 in Tortosa (Spain) earlier. The official launch of the organisation of the WSG 2019 will be with the beginning of the year 2018, where CSIT will start publishing important information continuously.
