20th World Transplant Games

For over 35 years the World Transplant Games Federation has been staging international sporting events for transplant athletes in order to demonstrate the physical success of transplant surgery and to raise awareness of the need to increase organ donation.

Mar del Plata, Argentina|30.08.2015

The officers and councillors of the World Transplant Games Federation are pleased to announce that the 20th World Transplant Games will be held in Mar del Plata, Argentina from 23 to 30 August 2015.

The Summer World Transplant Games take place every two years where over 1500 athletes representing some 69 countries compete at an extraordinarily high level.

However, many just come to enjoy taking part at their own pace and welcome the opportunity to meet with other transplant recipients in an atmosphere of fun and friendship. The Winter Games take place in the intervening years.

The World Transplant Games Federation is officially recognised by the International Olympic Committee.
