2020/7/14Apologies for causing confusion regarding the e-mail sent from “entry@wmg2021.jp” to those who have registered for an account on our website (sent on July 13th, titled “For those who are aiming for the World Masters Games 2021 Kansai”)

We received messages asking if the event was going to be for only Japanese athletes (!?), or the event had been cancelled. The answer is NO. We are preparing for the event as scheduled to welcome participants from all over the world.

While investigating what made people worry that way, we found out that our e-mail sent on July 13th to those who have registered for an account on our website had confusing line; *Only residents in Japan are able to participate in this event, as the application language is only in Japanese.
“this event” refers to our upcoming project called “Now, everyone Do Sports Project (#Do Sports)”, not the World Masters Games 2021, which will be held as scheduled.
In addition, we revised the condition of joining this project; Everyone in the world can join this project, the APP can be used, however, we regret to say that the APP and the webpage are only in Japanese language. In addition, the prize will be handed out in Japan (no shipping).
We are hoping to launch more project without language barriers in the future, like the “#StayActive” project (April-June, 2020). We will keep you updated!

We look forward to seeing you in Kansai next year, and we wish your good health and all the best for you.
