The International Island Games was born in the Isle of Man in 1985.

The idea was to provide an opportunity for hundreds of young sportsmen and women from small island communities, to compete and enjoy international competition against other islanders. The unique sporting event, offers opportunities for cultural exchange and social interaction.

The Festival was such a success that it was agreed to continue it every other year, with Guernsey hosting the Games in 1987.
