GOV GAMES is a series of physical and mental challenges that bring together people from the UAE and beyond. A unique initiative, the games reinforce team spirit and collaborative work between friends, colleagues, and government sectors from across the world. Launched in 2018 by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council, the GOV GAMES has been getting better and stronger every year.
