The European Games

The European Games is a multi-sport event held every four years, featuring athletes from European nations competing across various sports disciplines. It serves as a continental-level competition akin to the Olympics, showcasing European sporting talent and fostering unity and camaraderie among nations.

The inaugural European Games were held in 2015, and has been held every four years since. The event is similar to other major regional events such as the Pan-American and Asian Games — a multi-sport event along the lines of the Summer Olympic Games, though limited to athletes from European nations.
