Registrations can be individual or as a group.

Group registrations mean that only 1 person is allowed to have full access to the signing in process, and correspondingly to all the individual registrations in that specific group.

You can have 1 access only, and manage all registrations (personal info, payments, etc.) by following the Group Registration button (Registrations | World Firefighters Games 2022 (wfg2022.pt)).

Regarding the specific sports and teams, that will be taken care of at a later date.

We can also help you with the accommodation as a group. Instead of booking room by room through the WFG platform, we can handle it like a group booking and unique payment if needed.
