The International World Games Association (IWGA) has received seven applications for membership that comply with its formal criteria.
Applications have been made by the International Basketball Federation (FIBA), the International Triathlon Union (ITU), the International Wushu Federation (IWUF), the International Cycling Union (UCI), the International Union of Powerboating (UIM), the International Modern Pentathlon Union (UIPM) and United World Wrestling (UWW).
All seven International Federations (IFs) have been invited to give a final presentation to the IWGA Annual General Meeting (AGM), scheduled to take place on April 3 during SportAccord Convention in Danish city Aarhus.
The IWGA Executive Committee has requested that each applicant explain in their presentation, above all, how its membership would add value to the organisation.
The AGM will then make decisions on the matter.
The IWGA has 37 member federations at present.
For IFs to become a member of the IWGA, their membership with SportAccord is a prerequisite.
Another requirement is that the sports, or disciplines of sports, proposed by the federations for inclusion in the World Games are not currently on the programme of the Olympic Games.
The IWGA relocated their headquarters last month and now occupy a floor in the previous home of the International Gymnastics Federation in Lausanne.
The new office includes meeting rooms that can be used by the IWGA member federations when visiting the Swiss city.
This year's World Games will take place in Polish city Wroclaw between July 20 and 30.
The Games are held every four years.
