On December 8, 2012, at the 41st General Assembly of the European Olympic Committee in Rome, it has been decided to hold the first ever European Games.
The European Games will feature around 18 sports at the inaugural event in June 2015 although the final programme has not yet been finalised. From an early state, the Games were intended to have a small number of non-Olympic sports.
