The region of Emilia Romagna has stepped in at short notice as host city of the Games after Zagreb had to withdraw.

The official launch of the 7th CSIT World Sports Games from 12 to 17 October 2021 in Cervia in partnership with Cesena, Cesenatico and Ravenna (Italy) is one of the major items on the program of the 42nd CSIT Congress on 30 October. The region of Emilia Romagna has stepped in at short notice as host city of the Games after Zagreb had to withdraw due to the Corona pandemic and a severe earthquake. CSIT and President Bruno Molea want to set a positive sign to the world by hosting the games: “We want to send a signal to our members and partners by ensuring that the 2021 World Games are held in compliance with all necessary Covid-19 security and health measures. This is also an opportunity to show and enjoy the strength and message of the unity of the CSIT family”.
