Jun 05 - Over 1500 Athletes To Take Part In Island Games

The Gibraltar 2019 NatWest International Island Games has announced that almost 3000 people have registered for the games.

Kim Chang, Games Director said: "We thought we would give a snapshot of the final numbers of people registered for the Games. This gives an indication of the size of this event. We are expecting the Gibraltar 2019 Games to be one of the most important events in Gibraltar’s sporting history, there will be some inevitable traffic disruptions for the five road-based events but I urge the public to come down and support the Games. The schedules for all 14 sports are available on the Gibraltar 2019 website www.gibraltar2019.com."
