ICSD President' Message on the 2024 Winter Deaflympics

Dear athletes, sport leaders and friends,

I would like to make a short report on the preparations for the 20th Winter Deaflympics.

As I mentioned in my video and announcement of 21 March 2023, the next Winter Deaflympics will take place in Ankara, the capital of Turkey, from 18-28 February 2024, in 7 sports.

The ICSD and the host Turkish Deaf Sports Federation have been in very intensive negotiations over the period. We will soon send out an official notice to our member federations inviting them to register enter their athletes for the different sport events. It is important that NDSF enters the number of participants as accurately as possible, as this will help us determine the programs as closely as possible.

In a month's time, ICSD representatives will conduct a site visit in and around Ankara, after which the venues and the exact programme will be finalised. Further details will be shared with you later.

Thank you for your attention!

“Long live Deaf Sport!"
