Sport Is Your Gang is an initiative which started many years ago providing safe playgrounds especially for children from challenged backgrounds. The Bangkok Sport Accord Convention 2018 was hailed as one of the most successful, especially with the UN initiative born by AIMS, one of the five IOC and GAISF recognized umbrella bodies.
The initiative was called United Through Sports (UTS) and the three day festival, with the participation of over 60 sports and conferences which was given full patronage of the IOC, involved many participants including refugee and disadvantaged youth. Money was raised to give sport equipment and great playground areas.
One of the initiatives, still in the aftermath and thanks to the help of UTS, IFMA, Right to Play and the sponsoring of EX Sports, was the creation of the Bangkok Urban Youth Games. The event is also under the patronage of Khunying Patama, Thailand’s IOC member. The event series will run for 5 months with the final being played on His Majesty’s, The King’s birthday celebration.
