Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than government in breaking down racial barriers.
The International Tricolor Games are an amateur sporting event addressed to young athletes between 13 and 17 years old from all over the world, in particular from twin cities with many towns of the Province or Reggio Emilia. The numbers of the 6th edition hosted in Reggio Emilia from July 7th to 13th are: 3000 young athletes, 400 races in 50 sports facilities, over 30 sports disciplines and 1000 foreign athletes from 30 cities worldwide. The International Tricolor Games are an event developed within the European project ExpoSport, financed by Erasmus + Programme.
EXPOSPORT wants to promote volunteering sport, gender equality and social inclusion as vehicles to support friendship, solidarity between peoples and the knowledge of new and different cultures, as well as principles such as the important role of respect for different cultures, human rights and access to sport for everyone. It aims to demonstrate the positive effects a person can benefit from as individual and as part of a community, making sport and physical activity part of his or her daily life to share with others.
EXPOSPORT can count on the strong and positive experience of the previous editions of the International Tricolor Games. The first edition took place in 1997 when the Bicentenary of the Italian tricolor flag – born in Reggio Emilia – was celebrated. At the last edition of 2015, more than 600 young international athletes from 15 countries took part and over 2,000 young people came from other Italian cities.
