The Wroclaw Organizing Committee has issued the result of a poll concerning The World Games 2017. One of the positive results: the awareness of citizens that the City of Wroclaw will host this event in 2017 has nearly doubled in the last seven months. The event will be held from 20 – 30 July 2017 where muaythai is in the official programme of the Games.
In terms of the sample, 1100 inhabitants of Wroclaw took part in the poll. The sample was representative, as applied in most Polish polls, including those concerning politics and government approval ratings.
In October 2014, just 19% of the residents of the upcoming host city knew about TWG 2017. In May 2015, 35% of the citizens had become aware of the biggest sport event ever to be staged in Poland. Moreover, 66% of Wroclaw’s population is familiar with The World Games brand, which is a good omen for the future and an excellent foundation for raising awareness of the 10th edition of The World Games in the city.
Muaythai has become very popular in Poland in the last years as Polish athletes have brought medals from the World and European events. Polish Governmental Sport Authorities recognise muaythai and a lot of people train it for recreation, self defence and lifestyle. No doubts that the Orbita hall, the designated venue for muaythai at the World Games 2017, will be full with admirers of this sport both from Poland and all the other country of the world.
