The World Mind Sports Games (WMSG) are organized by The International Mind Sports Association (IMSA). The WBF incorporated the World Team Olympiad in the WMSG: All bridge competitions played within or in conjunction with WMSG are called World Bridge Games. The WMSG were held for the first time in 2008 in Beijing (China). For the 2nd edition of the World Mind Sports Games – WMSG – which includes the World Bridge Games (Open, Women & Seniors Teams) – there are still two options and IMSA announced that the final decision regarding the City in which it is to be held will be taken about the 15th of February.

The two options are:

CARDIFF, Wales, from 7/8th to 20th of August

Cardiff is the Capital of Wales.  It has a small International Airport and is approximately 2 hours from London Heathrow or 20 minutes from Bristol.  Cardiff is an interesting city with everything at walking distance.  It has plenty of hotels of all categories from 30 to 100 Euros, so inexpensive accommodation is available.  Food in the city is not expensive either. There are two separate venues and it is probable that one would be used for Bridge and Chess and the other one for Draughts, Go and an exhibition of Duplicate Poker and Xiang Qi).  The venues are 15 minutes walk from each other.  The Games would be sponsored by the Welsh Government and Cardiff City.


 STRASBOURG, France, from 9th to 23rd of August


Strasbourg, the European Parliament City, is a beautiful city and also has with plenty of hotels in all price ranges.  There is an International Airport  – and it is  2 ½  hrs by train from Paris.  It has a single Congress Centre in which all the events would be staged.
