Virtus has today opened the bid process for a number of events through to the Regional Games in 2026, including major World and Regional Championships. Bidding is open to all National Member Organisations of Virtus and the process is usually a competitive one, as hosting an event can have considerable benefits for the host nation and athletes who have the rare opportunity to compete on home-soil.
Marc Truffaut (Virtus President) said “Virtus is blessed with so many organisations who are willing to host our event programme, which grows with each 4-year cycle. The period to the 2027 Global Games will be no different as we see ii2 (athletes with severe intellectual disability and/or multiple impairment) and ii3 (athletes with autism) competition included across our sport programme – a major expansion which ensures fairer and more competitive events”.
Further information about those events open to bid can be found on the Virtus website.
