|2019 Games of the Small States of Europe|
The Games of the Small States of Europe (GSSE) is a biennial multi-sport event, launched by the Republic of San Marino, organized by and featuring the National Olympic Committees of nine European small states since 1985. The Games are held at the end of May or beginning of June and feature competition in nine Summer Olympic sports.
The games are organized by the members of the European Olympic Committees (EOC). From its initial forming at the 1984 Olympics through 2009, there were eight members; the group's ninth member (Montenegro) was added in 2009. Members all have a population of less than one million people (Cyprus is the only exception, however its population was below one million in 1984). Participating countries are:
(*) Montenegro became the ninth GSSE country on 1 June 2009.
The Faroe Islands are also seeking to compete at the Games; however, unlike the other participants, the Islands are neither an independent state (they are an autonomous part of Denmark) nor are they an EOC member.
Vatican City attended the 2019 edition of the tournament with observer status. After two years, the nation will achieve full member status and be eligible to enter the 2021 tournament. It is eligible to participate despite not being an International Olympic Committee member through a partnership with the Italian Olympic Committee.
