Softball at the World Games

The World Games are organized by the International World Games Association (IWGA , founded in 1981) every 4 years. Thus, an International Sports Federation (IF) can become a member of the IWGA; it must satisfy two essential conditions:
The IF must be a member of SportAccord (the umbrella organization for all (Olympic and non-Olympic) international sports federations), and their sport does not belong to the current Olympic program.
Since 1989 the World Games are under the special patronage of the IOC.
