Forty-seven years after the 7th edition, Algeria is hosting “La Radieuse” in Oran, the 19th Mediterranean festival of sport and friendship of the countries of our shores.
The “Lion” symbol of the city will roar with pleasure to see the elite of the sport of the nations bathed in “Mare Nostrum” evolve.
Yes, “Our Mediterranean Sea”, cradle of civilizations that we share, delegates Oran, to be its Capital from June 25 to July 5, 2022. The population of Oran, and of Algeria as a whole, from Tindouf to El Kala, from Tamenrasset to Maghnia, from our 58 Wilayas, sends a welcome message to the delegations of the 26 participating countries.
The Organizing Committee of the 19th Mediterranean Games of Oran 2022 (COJM), took up the challenge of being there, despite the constraints imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic, from which the whole world suffered.
In the name of all the members of this Committee, which I have the honor to chair, I address to the International Committee of the Mediterranean Games (ICMG) our thanks for the sustained collaboration, and the unfailing confidence shown in us.
Mohamed Aziz DEROUAZ
Commissioner of the 19th Mediterranean Games of Oran 2022
