The XVIII Mediterranean Games will be celebrated from the 22nd of June to the 1st of July 2018. This was communicated today to the Press by the Mayor and President of the Organizing Committee of the Mediterranean Games, Mr. Josep Fèlix Ballesteros, and by the President of the Spanish Olympic Committee, Mr. Alejandro Blanco.
The Mayor, Mr. Ballesteros, justified the decision of postponing the Games for one year due to the cause of ¨having a provisional Government for ten months and this prevented from having the expected State funding. Despite all this, the International Olympic Committee of the Mediterranean Games trust towards the Organizing Committee is still intact according to the statement given by its President, Mr. Amar Addadi. The will and the energy for continuing forward with the project are still untouched and are shared by the rest of the Public Entities¨.
The President of the Spanish Olympic Committee, Mr. Blanco, declared his total support to the Games and added that ¨the political situation in Spain has been complicated during several months but I´m certain that we will organize great Games on 2018″.
