Cali Columbia PanAmThe Panam Sports Executive Committee elects Cali, Colombia as the host of the historical first edition of the Junior Pan American Games in 2021 during its meeting in San Jose, Costa Rica.

Cali and the Colombian Olympic Committee now have two years to welcome the best young athletes from the 41 nations of the Americas to compete with the dream of qualifying to the Santiago 2023 Pan American Games.


SAN JOSE, COSTA RICA (March 27, 2019) — The first Junior Pan American Games in history will be held in Colombia’s “Capital of Sport”, Cali, following a vote by the Panam Sports Executive Committee.

Cali, Colombia was elected over fellow Candidate Cities Santa Ana, El Salvador and Monterrey, Mexico. Thirteen Members of the Panam Sports Executive Committee participated in the vote.

The election was held after a week-long Evaluation Commission visit to Cali and Santa Ana in late February, as well as presentations by all three Candidate Cities during the Panam Sports Executive Committee meeting currently underway in San Jose, Costa Rica.

After evaluating the proposals and presentations from each of these great cities, the historical vote was held. After the vote, the delegations from each city were brought into the room for the reveal of the chosen Host City by Panam Sports President, Neven Ilic.

"And the Host City of the first Junior Pan American Games in 2021 is... Cali, Colombia! Congratulations,” President Ilic announced with pride.
