To keep Manitobans safe and reduce the spread of COVID-19, Sport Manitoba and the Dauphin Host Society have announced that the Manitoba Games powered by Manitoba Hydro that were set to take place from August 9–15, 2020, have been postponed and will take place next summer in Dauphin from July 11–17, 2021.
Sport Manitoba and the Dauphin Host Society worked with the City of Dauphin and the Provincial Sport Organizations to reach the collective decision to postpone the event, and will work with all Games partners in the coming months to continue to prepare and plan for the new Games date.
The Manitoba Games powered by Manitoba Hydro are staged every two years and alternate between summer and winter sporting events, and are the largest ongoing multi-sport event in the province. The Games involve upwards of 3,000 athletes, coaches, officials and volunteers, and represent an opportunity for young athletes to compete and prepare to reach national and international sporting stages.
The sports showcased at the 2021 Manitoba Games include: Athletics, Baseball, Basketball, Cycling, Golf, Rugby, Sailing, Soccer, Softball, Swimming, Triathlon and Volleyball.
