The WTGF currently has over 60 member countries, most of whom have their own national transplant sport organisations. Every year we see new members join the Federation with an opportunity to now participate in the World Games and benefit from the various educational campaigns, which we undertake.

If a country has a formal association which stages sporting events for transplant recipients or is in the process of forming one, then it will be eligible to join the WTGF. A representative is usually appointed for each member country and that person – the country representative -  will be the main link between the WTGF and all transplanted athletes in that country receiving frequent communication and publications throughout the year.


The Membership cycle is renewed every two years. The membership cycle runs from April 2024 – March 2026.

At the General Assembly of April 2023, the WTGF Board announced their decision to suspend the payment of Membership Fees as this will be recovered through other means. No Membership Fees will be payable until further notice.

A country can attend their first Games without becoming a full member.
