World Games 2005 with less than 500 days to go



Mayoress of Duisburg Bärbel Zieling and Chief Executive Officer of the World Games Ltd. Gerd Bildau announce the kick off campaign with the first poster

Less than 500 days to go: On July 14, 2005 the World Games will start in Duisburg. More than 3,900 participants from over 90 countries are expected for the biggest multi-sports event between the Olympic Games in Athens this year and the 2006 Football World Championship in Germany.
Bärbel Zieling, Mayoress of Duisburg, is pleased with the state of preparations

"During the last weeks I personally have become more involved into the preparations of the World Games, especially with regard to securing sponsors and partners, support from the States' and the Federal government and enhancing communication. The World Games are a unique opportunity for us to present ourselves through the biggest multi-sports event in 2005 as hosts and as an attractive location in the Rhine-Ruhr area taking up the city's magnificent sports tradition. It is my aim that the people in Duisburg and its partner cities should commit hearts and souls to the World Games. The newly launched public relation campaign marks only the beginning of our efforts."
Gerd Bildau, Chief Executive Officer of the World Games Ltd. since the beginning of the year, summarizes the state of affairs as follows: "At present we are busy recruiting a top team for the World Games Ltd. to ensure that the World Games will take place at the highest possible level.

Therefore I am specially pleased that we could win Mr. Heiner Henze, the former Secretary General of the National Olympic Committee, as an expert consultant. During the months to come we will chiefly focus on communication to secure the broadest possible support for the Games and achieve that in July 2005 the highest possible number of people from within region and without will come to Duisburg."
In this context Heiner Henze makes it clear that the World Games are no minor event, but go far beyond the World University Games of which people in the area have pleasant memories. "The World Games are a top multi-sports event, even though not all sports are as popular as during the Olympic Games. Yet in Duisburg, too, the disciplines will be presented by their top athletes" argues Heiner Henze.
