In addition, special pages will be created about the different participating countries (including information about the country, the number of participants, and which types of sports they are participating in), about participants (with information about athletes, their background, and their results), and this will be updated as soon as countries and athletes confirm their participation in the Games. An electronic store will also be available, where anyone can see and buy branded souvenirs from the World Nomad Games.
