In addition to the Azores, the event will be also attended by representatives of the Balearic Islands, Corfu, Corsica, Guyana, Elba, Jersey, Cape Verde, Madeira, Malta, Guadeloupe, Sardinia and Sicily.
The Island Games are primarily intended to create a spirit of European citizenship in the context of the Olympic ideal by passing on to our youth, through Sport, a message based on fair play and respect for others.
