Winnipeg to welcome the 2023 World Police and Fire Games – Winnipeg

The World Police and Fire Games are coming to Winnipeg in 2023 and will host multiple sporting and entertainment events.

The games will take place between July 28th and August 6th and will be played in Transcona. Transconians are invited to attend all events free of charge.

“The World Police and Fire Games will be a world-class event for the entire city of Winnipeg and an opportunity to showcase the Transcona community to the world,” said Steve Mymko, Executive Director of Buhler Park.

More than 8,500 athletes representing law enforcement and firefighters from more than 60 countries around the world will compete in more than 60 unique and Olympic sports.

“We are so proud to partner with Buhler Recreation Park and the people and businesses of Transcona to welcome athletes from around the world,” said Mike Edwards, chief operating officer of the World Police and Fire Games 2023, in a statement .

A $250,000 investment was allocated to the East Winnipeg Sports Association through the Parks and Recreation Enhancement Program to improve ballfield drainage along with other infrastructure improvements.

“An investment in the park for these Games will allow the athletes to compete in a world-class facility while leaving a legacy that the people of Transcona can use and enjoy for years to come,” said Edwards.

Buhler Recreation Park covers 170 acres and is a regular destination for sporting events in Winnipeg.

“Leaving investments in our local sports facilities for the next generation is an important segment that Transcona residents will be proud of. As Buhler does not receive ongoing support as a regional park, this investment will provide a much-needed injection to improve a beautiful facility in our community,” said Transcona Coun. Shawn Nason.
