Lloydminster, SK - It was officially announced today that the City of Lloydminster has been selected to act as host community for the 2020 Saskatchewan Summer Games.

 “The Saskatchewan Games Council views Lloydminster as an ideal community to host the Saskatchewan Summer Games,” Bracken said. “With the City’s first-class venues, the enthusiasm and spirit of volunteerism found in the community, and its demonstrated experience with hosting numerous high-level sporting events, we are confident that Lloydminster will create an excellent and memorable multi-sport games experience for all involved.”

As the host of the 2020 Saskatchewan Summer Games, the community of Lloydminster is expected to see a significant economic and tourism benefit. The most recent Saskatchewan Summer Games, held in Estevan in 2016, generated an economic impact of nearly $8 million dollars due to visitor spending and capital development.

“The City of Lloydminster is honoured to be selected as host for the 2020 Saskatchewan Summer Games and we look forward to an opportunity to showcase our community on the provincial stage,” said Mayor Gerald Aalbers. “We have excellent facilities here in Lloydminster, but what really sets us apart is our warmth, hospitality and extraordinary spirit of volunteerism. We look forward to welcoming Saskatchewan’s best young athletes in 2020.”

The Games, tentatively scheduled for July or August 2020, will involve over 2,000 athletes, coaches and managers in 14 sports representing the nine sport and recreation districts within the province.
