We look forward to welcoming you as part of the Transplant Sport and Westfield Health British Transplant Games family in the summer.
The British Transplant Games are the flagship project of Transplant Sport and have been in existence for over 40 years when the first “Transplant Olympics” took place in Portsmouth in 1978. At that time, these Games were an international event and included teams from France, Greece and even the USA.
Since these early beginnings with competitors, affectionately known as “99 blooming miracles”, the Games have grown and are held every year in different cities throughout the UK. The British Transplant Games have been staged annually since 1978 in 17 host cities across the UK including Portsmouth (1994), Edinburgh (2007), Belfast (1998) Medway (2012), Sheffield (2013), Bolton (2014), NewcastleGateshead (2015), Liverpool (2016). North Lanarkshire (2017), Birmingham (2018) & Newport 2019.
The Games aim to demonstrate the benefits of transplantation, encouraging transplant patients to regain fitness, whilst increasing public awareness of the need for more people to join the NHS Organ Donation Register and discuss their wishes with their families. They also seek to thank and celebrate donor families and the gift of life. The 2020 Games will be held in Coventry.
The Games are a mass participation major sport and cultural event for transplant recipients and their families. With live donors competing throughout the games from the ages of 3 to 80+. The games receive no central funding and all monies must be raised via the Local Organising Committee.
The city of Coventry welcomes you to the 43rd edition of the Westfield Health British Transplant Games which will be held across the city from 30 July – 2 August 2020.
