GSSE 2017 – San Marino
The 17th GSSE will take place from 29 May to 3rd June 2017. The National Olympic Committee confirmed the new dates for the next edition to be organised in 2-year time on the San Marino smallest and oldest Republic, an enclave on Italy’s Easter coast.
The decision was taken during the GSSE General Assembly, which was held in Reykjavik early this month at the end of the very successful Iceland Games.
The 9 smallest countries in Europe - Andorra, Cyprus, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, Montenegro, San Marin - also confirmed the dates for the 18th edition – 3/8 June 2019 - to be organised for the very first time by the NOC of Montenegro, last country to join the group upon its official recognition by the IOC in 2007.
The Games will return to Sam Marino – one of the founders of the Games - for the third time, after the first 1985 edition and in 2001 .
