TWG 2017

The World Games 2017 have come to an end

The World Games 2017 Closing Ceremony began at 21.00 on Wolności Square – the site of The World Games Plaza and its fan zone.

During the Closing Ceremony, TWG 2017 athletes had a chance to say goodbye to fans and the representatives of the next host city of The World Games – Birmingham, Alabama – received the official TWG flag from Wrocław, which they will keep until the next edition of the Games in 2021. The Birmingham Games will be the 11th edition of The World Games.

In the official portion of the Ceremony, International World Games Association (IWGA) President Jose Perurena spoke, as did Birmingham Mayor William Bell and Wrocław Mayor Rafał Dutkiewicz.

One of the biggest attractions of the Closing Ceremony was a concert by Europe’s largest big band Rebel Babel Ensemble. The wind orchestra under the direction of Łukasz L.U.C Rostkowski presented a unique audo-visual spectacle set to an invigorating musical composition. They were accompanied by several soloists native to Wrocław: Ania Kłys, Natalia Lubrano, Girls on Fire, Mesajah and Nullo. In addition to their original compositions, the musicians of the Rebel Babel Ensemble performed several pieces composed by the band’s co-founder Jan Feat.

Now The World Games 2017 are history!
