Roscongress to Support World Friendship Games in Russia

A special presentation of the World Friendship Games took place with the support of the Roscongress Foundation at the Russia–Africa Economic and Humanitarian Forum.

Russia’s new flagship sports project was front and centre during the session ‘Sport: A Bridge of Friendship between Russia and Africa’. Minister of Sport Oleg Matytsin and President of the World Friendship Games Organizing Committee Alexey Sorokin were also on hand to take part in the project presentation in the Ministry of Sport pavilion.

The World Friendship Games will be taking place in Moscow and Yekaterinburg from 15 to 29 September 2024. The programme includes events in 27 different sports.

The Roscongress Foundation signed a cooperation agreement with the Organizing Committee of the World Friendship Games. The document was signed by Roscongress Foundation Chairman and CEO Alexander Stuglev and Alexey Sorokin.

“The Friendship Games are Russia’s new global project offering to world sport. As such, it is only natural to apply the considerable capabilities of Roscongress to the organization of such a large international event and take advantage of such important economic forums to promote the Games. The Roscongress sports platform has a wealth of experience in organizing major sports events, from the sports programme of the World Festival of Youth and Students to the World Wrestling Championships, introducing new competition formats, and facilitating cooperation among leading sports federations,” Roscongress Foundation Supervisory Board Member Georgy Bryusov said.

The World Friendship Games will bring together international athletes willing to compete without regard to politics.

The only criterion for admission will be sporting achievements.

The Roscongress Foundation is the organizer of the Second Russia–Africa Summit and Economic and Humanitarian Forum.
