In order to determine the teams that will compete in the Mediterranean Games Oran 2022, the Organizing Committee of the JMO proceeded to the drawing of lots for team sports on the evening of Monday, May 30 at the Hotel Le Meridien, more precisely at the Wahrane Hall.

The event was broadcast live and under the eyes of more than 300 people, including the Minister of Communication Mr. Mohamed Bouslimani, Mr. Mohamed Aziz Derouaz Commissioner and President of the JMO, Mr. Said Saayoud, Wali of the Wilaya of Oran, as well  as several Olympic champions, consuls, representatives of the participating delegations, and members of the ICMG Coordination Commission.

This ceremony was animated by various artistic activities reflecting the culture of the country.    Only five disciplines were concerned by this draw: water polo, handball, volleyball, soccer and 3×3 basketball; a new discipline which makes its second appearance at the Mediterranean Games, whose principle is to play three against three on a half court, and score in the same basket!
