So if the World Police & Fire Games is new to you this is what it is all about.
The World Police and Fire Games is the third largest international multi-sport event in the world and will be the largest ever sporting event to take place in Northern Ireland. The 2013 Games will have more competitors than any previous Commonwealth Games. In 2013 there will be 56 sports held at 41 venues across Northern Ireland from 1st–10th August 2013.
7,000 competitors from over 60 countries are expected to take part. Approximately 3,600 volunteers will help deliver the ‘friendliest Games ever’ and will create a diverse pool of skilled volunteers for future events in Northern Ireland. The Games will also leave a lasting legacy as a result of extensive services engagement in the community, with schools and with young people, and through our three official charities. WPFG will provide a major economic boost for Northern Ireland, generating much needed revenue for the service sector including hotels, restaurants, shops and visitor attractions.
