Perth secures 2021 Australian Masters Games
Perth is set to host one of Australia's largest multi-sport festivals when the 18th Australian Masters Games returns in 2021. Sponsored by the State Government through Tourism WA and VenuesWest, the 2021 Australian Masters Games is expected to attract more than 7,000 competitors with about 5,500 visitors travelling to Perth specifically for the event.
Regarded as one of the premier sporting events on the Australian mass participation sporting calendar, the biennial event involves more than 50 different sports for people over the age of 30.
The Australian Masters Games is also known for its wide range of social events, with an extensive program of live music and entertainment providing opportunities for attendees to experience Perth's vibrant entertainment scene and premium food and wine. People visiting for the Games will also be encouraged to spend longer in the State and explore regional WA.
The 2021 event will be only the second time Perth has hosted the Games. The last time it was staged in Western Australia was in 1993.
Tourism Minister Paul Papalia states that "this is a key goal of the Government's Two-Year Action Plan for tourism which aims to boost visitors to the State, encourage them to stay longer, disperse further and do more while they are here."
"The Games provides a unique opportunity for older players to compete at a high level - reinforcing the importance of keeping physically active at all stages of life,” said Sport and Recreation Minister Mick Murray.
"The recent audit of the State's elite sporting facilities demonstrated the wealth of world-class venues at our disposal, which gives WA a real advantage in attracting high participation events such as this."
In 2019 the 17th edition of the Games will be hosted in Adelaide from Saturday 5th to Saturday 12th October. It is expected over 8,000 participants will compete across over 40 different sports from softball to athletics to dragon boat to boxing.
The variety of sports on offer provides the opportunity for participants to try a new sport, compete in multiple sports during the week and register as an individual or in a team.
