2019 World Roller Games

Barcelona to host 2019 World Roller Games

The Spanish city had been due to host the first edition of the International Roller Sports Federation (FIRS) in 2017 after being awarded the Games last year.

Following elections in Barcelona, however, the new administration asked FIRS to be released from the promise they had made to stage the Games.

The governing body announced Nanjing in China as their replacements for the inaugural event in January.
