The IMGA doesn’t allow building new venues and encourages the host cities to use existing facilities to keep the costs lower. Therefore, the following information is subject to changes depending on the venues available.

Age categories

Men: 30+, 35+, 40+, 45+, 50+, 55+, 60+
Women: 30+, 35+, 40+, 45+, 50+, 55+, 60+

The age category you will compete in for Football will be determined as at 31 December of the year of the event. For team sports, the category you compete in is based on the age of the youngest team member.For example, if your youngest team member is 39 during Games time but has turned 40 by 31 December, you would compete in the 40+ age category.
