The official poster of the 9th Indian Ocean Island Games, which will take place on Reunion Island from 1st till 8th August, 2015, has been revealed.
Mauritius Commercial Bank (MCB), which happens to be one of the largest lenders in the Indian Ocean region, is a proud sponsor of the Indian Ocean Island Games.
This poster captures perfectly the communion of the different islands, connected by a beam of light finding its origin in Reunion Island and linking the other territories for an alliance around these Games.
The logo was validated on the occasion of the last meeting of the International Game Council, which witnessed the coming together of all the island economies — Mauritius, Comoros, Mayotte, Madagascar, Maldives, Reunion and Seychelles — participating in this grand sporting event.
“We are very happy to hold the Games in Reunion Island after as many as seventeen years,” said Vice-President of the ‘Conseil régional olympique et sportif’ (CROS), Adolphe Pépin.
“We are satisfied with this achievement, and have worked very hard to obtain the privilege of hosting the 9th Indian Ocean Island Games,” he added.
Finally, more than 2,200 participants, featuring 2,000 athletes and executive managers, are expected in Reunion for the Games at the beginning of August 2015.
