At World Masters Games 2017 HQ, we are in celebration mode. That’s because the sporting festival of a lifetime is now just two years away.
It’s so close you can taste it. Or maybe that’s our world class kiwi cuisine you’re imagining, or the region’s award winning wines, or maybe just the sweet taste of medal-winning victory.
Our International Goodwill Ambassador Lord Sebastian Coe has offered some kind words of wisdom as we embark on the next stage of the planning journey. You can view the video here. He also shares a few tips about what to see and do in New Zealand for those planning their trip.
Preparations are well underway
As we’ve said before, Games preparations are well underway. The 28 official sports have been announced, and the 45 venues can now be viewed on our interactive map.
These world class venues include two that are brand new. They are the National Aquatic Centre at AUT Millennium that is currently under construction, which will be home to swimming and water polo. Also canoe slalom which will be held at Wero, a new state of the art venue currently being built in South Auckland.
Which only leaves just one question, are you planning your trip yet?
