Kuwait is ready to host the 3rd Gulf Cooperation Council Games

Kuwait is ready to host the 3rd Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Games, which are scheduled to be held from May 13 to May 31, 2022.


The opening ceremony is set to take place on Sunday, May 22.


This is Kuwait’s first time hosting the Games, the regional multi-sport event that involves participants from the Gulf Cooperation Council region.


The GCC Games is a quadrennial multi-sport event that was established by the union and was first held in Bahrain in 2011.


This edition of the GCC Games was originally scheduled for April 2020, but attempts to hold the event have been hampered by the pandemic.


Six countries — Bahrain, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and host Kuwait — will take part in this edition.


A total of more than 1,500 athletes and 500 officials will participate in 16 sports, including handball, athletics, basketball (5×5 and 3×3), cycling, e-sports, futsal, fencing, handball, ice hockey, judo, karate, padel, shooting, swimming, table tennis, tennis, and volleyball.


This is the biggest sporting event to be hosted by Kuwait and for the first time in the history of the GCC Game.
