15-21 April 2023
The 24th World Transplant Games will be staged in Perth, Australia in 2023.
First held 1978 in Portsmouth, UK, the Games has grown to become the world’s largest awareness event for the gift of life and a beacon for transplant recipients, their families and supporters, donor families and living donors.
The World Transplant Games raises public awareness of the importance and benefits of organ donation by demonstrating the health and fitness that can be achieved post-transplant. Our athletes are ambassadors for the value of organ donation, striving towards full rehabilitation through exercise, camaraderie and healthy living, and giving hope to people on transplant waiting lists all around the world. The World Transplant Games offers recipients a way of saying ‘thank you’ to those who made it all possible – living and deceased donors, their families, health professionals, researchers and carers. Without them, there would be nobody on the starting line.
The Games has been held on the continents of North America, South America, Africa, Asia, and Europe. This will be the third time the Games have been held in Australia, with successful events previously held in Sydney in 1997 and the Gold Coast in 2009.
The seven-day program of high exertion and low impact sports, along with many social and cultural events, caters to both elite and social athletes and attracts 2500 participants from over 60 nations.
