Welcome

Welcome to our site for the Island Games 2021. We are looking forward to hosting the Island Games in July 2021 and planning is already underway.

Medal Design Competition

Our medal design completion is now open to all residents of the Bailiwick of Guernsey. See the Medal Design page for full details.

Why Guernsey? 

Guernsey has a proud tradition of support for the Island Games both as a competitor and as a host.  The island has hosted the games twice in 1987 and 2003. Many facilities are already suitable for hosting a top class Games.

The support of the Island community is obviously paramount to the success of the Games, and interest in the 2021 Games is already gathering pace. The organising committee is in place, and various sports associations on the island are already involved.
