ANOC has announced earlier this week that it has decided to relocate the ANOC World Beach Games from San Diego to a new host city to ensure it provides the best possible environment for NOCs and their athletes.

The decision was taken following discussions with the San Diego Organising Committee where it was made clear that San Diego would not be able to generate the necessary revenue locally to host an event to the standards required.

ANOC has informed participating International Federations that the Games will take place in 2019 and they are currently in discussion with a number of cities that have the financial guarantees necessary and a proven track record to host a world-class event.  An announcement on the new host city will be made by ANOC in due course.
