Venues Announced for the London 2018 Ontario Summer Games

Ontario’s top amateur athletes to compete in 25 venues across the city

(London, Ontario) – With less than 200 days until the province’s top amateur athletes come to town, the London 2018 Ontario Summer Games Host Organizing Committee announced today the 25 venues where athletes will compete. Western University will be the heart of the Games, five sport competitions will take place on campus, in addition to the Opening Ceremonies, Athlete’s Village and headquarters for the Games. The remainder of the venues are spread across the city, from Crumlin Sportsmen’s Association in the far east, west to Boler Mountain, and north into Denfield, host site of the Triathlon competition.

“This is an exciting opportunity not only to showcase the world-class sporting venues London has to offer, but also our restaurants, attractions, and everything else that makes London so special,” said Dave De Kelver, General Manager of the London 2018 Ontario Summer Games. “London’s high quality venues will allow athletes to compete to the best of their abilities, while also allowing participants and spectators to get out and explore the entire city.”

“Multisport events like this are great for London,” said Cheryl Finn, Director of Sport Tourism with Tourism London.  “Not only does it provide the opportunity to showcase our city to the athletes and coaches, but we also get to work with our local and provincial sport organizations and promote London as a destination for potential future sport hosting opportunities”.
