SPORTS - Calling on Sporting Hosts

The 2019 Glencore Great Western Games is taking shape with additional funding this year to promote the games, the region and encourage participation. Thank you to Glencore who have been long standing supporters of the games, Mount Isa City Council and to QDEP funding from Tourism Events Queensland for supporting what promises to be a games to remember.

NQSF is calling on sporting associations along the Overlander’s Way from Charters Towers to Mount Isa to provide a range of sports that will inspire athletes from all over QLD to be involved. As a result your sport will receive maximum exposure throughout Northern & North Western Qld from the online strategy. The online registration facility is totally compatible with other registration systems and reduces the work involved with managing event registration.

The NEW online format was successfully used for the 2018 NQ Games and will bring the 2019 Glencore Great Western Games into line with current event operation management.

The 2019 Glencore Great Western Games provides an opportunity for athletes, officials and supporters to participate in this biennial event whilst taking in what Outback Queensland has to offer.
