About the Games

A celebration of a second chance of life, demonstrating the success of transplant surgery and promoting the need to raise public awareness of organ and tissue donation.

The 25th World Transplant Games will be staged in Dresden, Germany in 2025.

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 Games has been held on the continents of North America, South America, Africa, Asia, Australia and Europe. This will be the first time the Games will be held in Germany.

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 3000 participants from over 60 nations.
