Although no official announcemnets have been made, a source close to the World School Games Organising Committee confirmed that, in addition to the U11 & U13 multi-sport events already scheduled for early 2019, plans are also well under way for a number of single-sport ‘School World Cups’ to take place in 2019.
Full details of the events have yet to be released by ‘The World School Games’, but it is understood that there will be individual events for football, netball, and rugby, and that the events will be staged throughout 2019 in various countries across Europe and the Middle East.
