Launch of the 2023 Games of the Small States of Europe

The Games of the Small States of Europe, the biennial multisport event, will be returning to Malta in 2023, two decades after it was last hosted on our island.

This was officially announced by The Ministry for Education and Sport, the Maltese Olympic Committee and Sport Malta on the 31st January 2022, at Cottonera Sports Complex.

The launch took place in a hybrid format and welcomed several Maltese medallists from the 1993 and 2003 editions. Joining the event virtually were GSSE member states’ Presidents and Chefs de Mission.

The GSSE feature a core of six individual sports and two team sports. Each organising committee may add a maximum of two other Olympic sports or one Olympic Sport and one non-Olympic Sport.
