Around 4,000 athletes from 50 countries participated. Ten of the sports offered qualification opportunities for the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan. The opening ceremony at the Dinamo Stadium was held on 21 June and the closing ceremony at the Dinamo Stadium was held on 30 June.
The logo of the games was “paparać-kvietka”—a plant that plays an important role in the culture of the Slavs. The slogan of the event is Bright Year, Bright You, which also references the national domain of the Republic of Belarus and the official international shortening—BY. The Belarussian equivalent of the slogan is the phrase “Час яскравых перамог!”, and Russian is “Время ярких побед!”.
