The 2011 Military World Games, officially known as the 5th CISM Military World Games, was hosted from July 15–24, 2011 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The 5th Military World Games was the largest military sports event ever held in Brazil, with approximately 4,900 athletes from 108 countries competing in 20 sports. The Games were organized by the Military Sports Commission of Brazil (CDMB) and the military commands (Army, Navy and Air Force), in accordance with CISM regulations and the rules of the International Sports Federations.

Organization[edit]

Bidding process[edit]

Brazil was chosen to host the 5th Military World Games during a meeting of the International Military Sports Council held in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, on May 25, 2007. Brazil won, by means of a ballot, the race against Turkey to host the 2011 games. Representatives from over 75 countries took part in the poll. Rio's existing sports infrastructure, the Brazilian expertise at hosting major events, and the support granted to the project by the local authorities were decisive for the Brazilian victory.[1]

Infrastructure and budget[edit]

The athletes participating in the 5th Military World Games were accommodated in three athlete's villages (Green, Blue and White), all located in Rio de Janeiro. The Green Village was located in the neighborhood of Deodoro, the Blue Village in Campo dos Afonsos and the White Village in the district of Campo Grande.[2] The villages were built to be a functional and diverse center, vital to the operations of the Military World Games. The three villages comprise 106 buildings, 1,206 apartments and 4,824 rooms, with capacity to accommodate about 6,000 athletes and 2,000 officials. The budget used for the construction of the three villages is of R$ 400 million.

Venues[edit]

Twenty-seven competition venues were used during the 5th Military World Games, the majority located within Rio de Janeiro.[3]

The venues located outside the city of Rio de Janeiro were the Resende Airport and the Academia Militar das Agulhas Negras located in Resende, the Avelar Instruction Center located in Paty do Alferes, the Mario Xavier National Forest located in Seropédica, and the Giulite Coutinho Stadium belonging to America Football Club located in Mesquita.[4]
