The International World Games Association (IWGA) and Birmingham Organising Committee (BOC) have agreed to postpone the 11th edition of The World Games until 7th to 17th July 2022. The Games had originally been planned to take place from 15–25 July next year.

The move is precipitated by the recent postponement of the Tokyo Olympic Games to July 2021 and this date range was the only period in 2022 that could handle organizer venue, accommodation and sponsor needs. It remains to be seen how this will impact the orienteering program as the new dates overlap the 2022 World Orienteering Championships in Edinburgh, Scotland.
