The COBIS Primary and Secondary Games are held in alternate years. 2020 will see the COBIS Secondary Games 2020 hosted by The British School of Brussels, Belgium between 26-30 March 2020.

Registration opens early September 2019.


The COBIS Secondary Games is an exciting opportunity for students from across the world to compete in a variety of sporting disciplines, whilst also allowing them to make new friends and widen their cultural experiences. The COBIS Games are open to all COBIS Member Schools.


Over three days, 16 students from each school (eight girls and eight boys) will take part in swimming, athletics and football in a bid to accrue the most points and take home the Championship trophy. 

Student Eligibility

Schools may bring students who are in Years 7 and 8 who were born between 1 September 2006 and 31 August 2008. Students outside of this age-group will not be allowed to participate. Each student will take part in all three of the sports - football, athletics and swimming.


Registration for the COBIS Games will open in early September.

If more schools register than places available, registered schools will be entered into a lottery draw.
