0 0
Loughborough University has been confirmed as the host city for the 2016 School Games national finals, following the conclusion of this year's event in Manchester.

Following detailed consideration from an independent panel, Sport England and the Youth Sport Trust, Loughborugh fought off competition to be announced as the host city for the 2016 School Games. The event brings together 1,600 of the UK's best young athletes for four days of sporting competition and will take place 1-4 September 2016.

Widely recognised as one of the UK's best sports universities, Loughborough, supported by Leicestershire County Council and Leicester-Shire and Rutland Sport, will host 12 sports, opening and closing ceremonies, an Athletes' Village, and thousands of spectators for the 2016 finals. 

Youth Sport Trust Chief Executive, Ali Oliver, added: "The School Games give a true taste of high-level multi-sport competition to the UK's best school-aged competitors. I have no doubt that Loughborough will continue the excellent reputation this event has now rightly gained.

"Thank you to all those who helped make the Sainsbury's 2015 School Games in Manchester the best yet. We look forward to working with Loughborough University to welcome more young athletes, volunteers, coaches and spectators in 12 months time."
