Taipei City Mayor Chiang Wan-an and New Taipei City Mayor Hou Yu-ih said Tuesday (Sept. 12) that they hope the 2025 World Masters Games held by the two cities can help promote sports and tourism in Taiwan.

At the press conference to launch the STRONG WIN warm-up activity series for the 2025 World Masters Games, Chiang stated that Taipei and New Taipei stood out from other cities, such as Paris and Perth, Australia, which signifies the acknowledgment of the two cities' abilities to hold international events.

 

Chiang said they expect about 40,000 people, including athletes, their families and friends, and team staff from 110 countries, to come to Taipei, New Taipei, and other surrounding municipalities.

"It will not only foster sports but also boost tourism, transportation, sustainability, and digital development in the vicinity," Chiang said.

Counting down about 600 days till the event, Hou added that the 2025 World Masters Games is an event that combines sports, tourism, and culture and a bridge to make friendships.
 

"Let Taiwan be showcased to the world. Let sports serve as Taiwan's conduit to forge international friendships," Hou said.

The World Masters Games is a multi-sport event governed by the International Masters Games Association every four years. In general, any sports enthusiast can compete as an athlete. The minimum age requirement is 25 to 35, depending on the sport, and there are no maximum age limitations.

Registration for the competition will be open in February next year.
