Taipei to welcome 20,000 athletes to the 2025 World Masters Games
The world’s largest multi-sport participatory event, the World Masters Games, founded in 1985 in Toronto, will mark its historic debut in Asia in 2025 as it lands in Taipei and New Taipei City, Taiwan.
During the 14-day games, more than 20,000 international athletes are expected to gather and compete in 35 different sports. Registration opens in February 2024. The World Masters Games welcomes athletes aged over 30 across different nationalities to compete.
The selection of Taipei City to host the World Master Games is a testament to the city's event infrastructure. More than 40,000 rooms are available across the city, which also offers a vast selection of meetings and event venues. In addition to traditional venues such as the Taipei International Convention Center, Taipei World Trade Center and Nangang Exhibition Hall, Taipei City also houses a selection of unconventional venues that showcase unique cultural elements of its history and heritage. For example, the Songshan Cultural and Creative Park, which was formerly Taiwan's first modern tobacco factory, has been transformed into a creative and innovation cluster with meeting spaces suitable for hundreds of people.
