861 accredited media representatives from 50 countries covered The World Games from Wroclaw. They had good working conditions in the Main Media Centre, as well as at the Sub Media Centres at all of the 24 competition venues. The media, in addition to the athletes and officials, praised the 1600 volunteers that had arrived to Wroclaw from 59 countries to help and assist the participants. When the storm hit Wroclaw on the first week of the Games, it was the volunteers who saved the venues together with the staff from the Wroclaw Organising Committee.
President Perurena said after the Games: “I am very pleased with The World Games 2017. The organisers have done an amazing job: the venues were of very high standard, the competitions smooth and fair, the volunteers helpful and friendly and we had a world-wide TV coverage like never before, produced by the ISB and the ATM. We have received a lot of positive feedback from the international federations, journalists, spectators and officials. However, the most important thing for me is that the athletes were happy with the Games."
During the Closing Ceremony on 30 July, the IWGA flag was handed over to the Mayor of Birmingham, Alabama, where the 11th edition of The World Games will be held in 2021
