Turkey will host the "FAI World Air Games 2020"
The event is scheduled for September
Turkey will be the official host country for the "FAI World Air Games 2020", according to a contract signed last Wednesday by Kursat Atilgan, President of the Turkish FAI Member Türk Hava Kurumu (THK), and Frits Brink, President of the FAI, in Lausanne, Switzerland.
Scheduled for September 2020, the Games will take place in some of the most iconic locations in Turkey, with the event split between Ankara, Antalya, Eskisehir, Efes/Selcuk, Ölüdeniz/Fethiye and Pammukale/Honaz.
The Opening Ceremony will take place in Turkey’s capital city Ankara, while the Closing Ceremony will be in the tourist destination of Antalya.
The signing of the contract naming Turkey as the "FAI World Air Games 2020" host country took place at the Olympic Museum in Lausanne.
This location reflects the FAI’s status as an International Olympic Committee (IOC) Recognised Federation, and part of the Olympic Movement.
Now the agreement has been confirmed, preparations for the event will begin, with THK planning a round of investment to ensure facilities are of the highest standard.
