The World Games are coming to Birmingham in just over 500 days and the man in charge of what he calls the biggest multi-sport event to come to the Southeast since the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta said there is much work to be done.

Nick Sellers, CEO of the 2021 World Games, said the Magic City needs to put its best foot forward while it has the world’s attention.

“How many chances do you get to see the world without leaving your backyard? That’s what we’re going to offer, really, not just the city of Birmingham and the state of Alabama, but the whole Southeast,” Sellers said. “We think within a three- to four-hour drive time we can draw upwards of a half a million fans and spectators over that 10-day period.”
