History of the Games

The BRICS Games are annual multisport competitions among member states of the BRICS group
The event is usually organised by the country chairing the group that year
The first football tournament among the BRICS member countries was held in 2016 under India’s chairmanship
The first BRICS games in three sports were held at the summits in 2017−2018: Guangzhou (China) — basketball, volleyball, and wushu, Johannesburg (South Africa) — football, volleyball, and netball.
Following the success of the first BRICS Games in 2018, the decision was made to expand the traditional sports games programme to include the national sports of the participating countries
In 2020, following the results of the first BRICS Sport Ministers Meeting, a Memorandum of Cooperation in the field of physical education and sport was adopted, which, among other things, provides for the holding of the annual BRICS Sports Games by the chair country.
The BRICS Games have been held three times
In 2019, 2020, and 2021, due to the threat of the spread of COVID-19, the Games were held online
As part of the Russian chairmanship of BRICS, the 2024 Games are planned to be held in Kazan (Republic of Tatarstan)
The main goal of the tournament will be to strengthen friendly sports ties among the BRICS countries based on the principles of equality, non-discrimination, and equal access of athletes to competitions.
The international multisport event will be held on 11−23 June, 2024
The Games will be held ahead of the BRICS Summit in October, which will also be hosted by the capital of the Republic of Tatarstan.
