Birmingham Praised in March WPFG Federation Meetings and Venue Tours


Before the 2025 World Police and Fire Games planning and promotion can proceed, the WPFG Federation leadership needed to visit proposed venues and meet with the Birmingham team to approve plans. Birmingham did not disappoint!


The Birmingham Host Committee was honored to host the WPFG Federation and teams from the 2023 Winnipeg WPFG & 2027 Perth WPFG organizers for an action-packed week to show them what the Magic City has in store. Important information was shared with the closing report from the 2023 Winnipeg Host Committee, as well as a preview from the 2027 Host Committee.


The daily Federation meetings concentrated on details for all aspects of producing this massive first responder event and how the city will roll out the red carpet. Areas beyond sports included athlete recruitment & ambassador program, special events including the opening and closing ceremonies, athletes village, press and media relations, government relations & public safety involvement.


The midday venue tours allowed our visitors and partners to view the city and its top-tier sport & entertainment venues. The group enjoyed walking through the downtown area and the BJCC which will be the hub of activity. The Birmingham team assisted as tour guides through the entire experience.


Evening events included a welcome social at Cahaba Brewing Company and gatherings at The Club and Le Fresca. On other nights we provided detailed entertainment information and allowed our visitors to explore and sample the city. The reviews are in, and they love Birmingham!


The intense work week with the Federation helped finalize many aspects of our hosting plans and the team is now putting the wheels in motion. Watch for more announcements in coming months as the excitement grows for the 2025 World Police & Fire Games!
