The World Urban Games (WUG) is the ultimate celebration of new-generation sports forged by the spirit of youth. It is a showcase for the skill, style and power of the most inspirational urban athletes on the planet. The World Urban Games comprises a wide-ranging programme of competitive and showcase urban sports complimented by a Festival of youth-focused music, art and culture.

The first edition of the World Urban Games is taking place now, in Budapest, Hungary.

The spirit of Urban Games is the spirit of the age; No compromise on the pursuit of perfection, Creativity in performance, Engagement with audiences and Involvement through the opportunity to experience the various sports, Respect for fellow competitors, and followers, Global Connectivity through digital technology, love of the Lifestyle and care for the Environment.


The World Urban Games Sports Programme consist of competition events, showcase events, and amateur and initiation sessions where the public and the youth can participate.



Two showcase events will also be present at the 2019 edition of the World Urban Games.

The aim of such a programme is to promote sports/disciplines which are innovative and appealing to the youth and local population but have not yet reached the required level of maturation to be part of the Competition programme. In collaboration with GAISF, the respective IFs and the NFs, the LOC developed a concept to display the Showcase events in a fun and engaging way.
