The Semi-Finals Are Here...
And Here Are Your Semi-Finalists.

<<First Name>>,

You’ve watched. You’ve waited. You’ve created. And now it begins to pay-off. From the moment the first Equal Space™ Challenge was launched, we knew great things were coming—new ideas for new Sports In Space™. After a global crowd vote, the selections were announced as the “Sweet Sixteen” ideas to move forward to the Semi-Finals. Today we reveal YOUR Semi-Finalists, that will go on to compete for the ultimate title of first sport to be played in space.
Drumroll, please…

What's Next?

The Space Games Selection Council (SGSC), made up of a diverse group of esteemed experts in astrophysics, space science, athletics, sports broadcasting, pro-sports, special effects for TV shows and movies (from “Stranger Things” to “Star Trek” and beyond), education, gymnastics and others, will take a deep dive into all the sports, and select the games that will be the first to fly in 2020.
Like we’ve told you all along: these are the games that are More Challenging Than Anything On Earth™!
Congratulations once again to all our Semi-Finalists, and a “Welcome Aboard!” to our experts on the SGSC.
