In another coup for the state, South Australia has secured the rights to host the 2023 Australian Masters Games – attracting participants from around the world for an eight-day sports festival that is expected to inject more than $ 12 million into the state’s economy.
More than 70 venues across the state will host some 45 sports and 9,000 athletes, providing a boost to local businesses.
AMG is Australia’s largest multi-sport participating event. South Australia has hosted the event seven times since 1989. The State Government, through the South Australian Tourism Commission, is the main sponsor of AMG 2019.
“This event has previously yielded good results for South Australia, with the 2019 Olympics providing an economic gain of $ 11.9 million for our state, and bringing thousands of competitors to South Australia,” the Prime Minister said.
“This is yet another event that will put our state on the map globally, and showcase all that South Australia has to offer.
“This game will also provide a much needed boost to local businesses, inject millions of people into the economy and support our recovery from the global Corona virus pandemic.
“Nearly 70 percent of AMG 2019 attendees come from states and abroad, with competitors coming from all states and territories. We also have participants from 25 countries, and even though it is still a few years away, we hope to keep attracting visitors from abroad. “
AMG provides sports competitions and social interactions for people over the age of 30. AMG is open to anyone who meets the age requirements for the sport of their choice.
It does not impose qualification standards, with the aim of encouraging life-long participation in the sport. In addition to a busy sports schedule, the Olympic program includes a wide range of social events, providing a festival and lively atmosphere for Adelaide competitors and visitors.
“We know the participants come here to have fun competing, playing on team sports, or eyeing PB in their sport of choice, but they both like to get out and explore roadside bars, wineries, restaurants, and exciting outdoor activities. fun. “
The president of AMG event owner, Confederation of Australian Sport, Mr Rob Bradley said he was thrilled that Adelaide was hosting the 2023 Australian Masters Games.
“South Australia has hosted AMG more often than any other state and is arguably the spiritual home of Masters Sport in our country,” he said.
