Hola! On behalf of the World Transplant Games Federation and the City of Málaga, we invite you to take part in the Twenty-First World Transplant Games. These inspirational Games will be held in the beautiful Mediterranean port city of Málaga, from Sunday 25 June – Sunday 02 July, 2017
Málaga is known for its famous citadels, high-rise hotels and resorts jutting up from the yellow-sand beaches – and of course birthplace of Picasso. In 2015 Málaga received recognition by being included as a “Top Destination” and “Best Places to Go” in two of the world’s most popular travel guides: Rough Guides and Frommers. Through this website our goal is to help you discover everything that Málaga and the 2017 World Transplant Games has to offer.
Over the next few weeks and months, this website will expand to include detailed information about the sports schedule, sports venues, social events, registration, policies, medical, travel and logistics, donor recognition and transplant initiatives as well as all the wonderful sightseeing opportunities which make Málaga, and Spain a must visit destination.
Málaga is delighted to be announced as the hosts for the XXI World Transplant Games and is well on track to bringing you a very successful, exciting and meaningful World Transplant Games. We have been working hard with the WTGF to ensure that these games represent all the best experiences which you, our transplant athletes, families and friends have come to expect. If you have not already, please ensure you sign up for our newsletter and don’t forget to like us on Facebook @ Official World Transplant Games.
