A big year ahead...

After two years with almost no international competition, we are excited to have a packed progrmme of championships coming up in 2022.

Our season begins with the Virtus World Football Championships in France in June. This brings together the top-8 ranked teams from around the World including Saudi Arabia, who will be going for a record 5th World Cup title. 

Then we head to Poland for the 2nd European Regional Games - a multi-sport event bringing together athletes from across Europe for a week long celebration of the very best that sport can offer. 

In September and November it's the inaugural Regional Games in Americas and Oceania/Asia respectively - growing our regional competition programme across the world - where many athletes will already be seeking qualification times for the 2023 Virtus Global Games, now just 17 months away. 

And in addition to these major events we have the World Cross-Country Championships in the USA and more - for the full calendar visit our website

As the world emerges from the coronavirus pandemic, there are still many uncertainties to navigate. However, this has been a particularly difficult time for athletes with an intellectual impairment who have been denied the opportunity to take to the track, pool or court to inspire the world through sport. 

Virtus research has shown that funding to organisations that support athletes has been cut in many places and for many, a missed competition opportunity can never be replaced. 

So we would like to thank all of those people who have chosen to support Virtus over the past two years. Whether through virtual competition, by connecting people and organisations, by developing online training and education or by doing whatever we could to grow awareness of sport for athletes with an intellectual impairment we were committed to supporting athletes through this difficult period... and this was all made possible by your generous support. 

We look forward to once again being able to share stories of athlete success on the field of play as our competition programme resumes in June, and wish all supporters a safe and very successful 2022.
