The Toronto 2015 Pan Am and Parapan Am Games are coming to York University and with it a world of excitement.

York University will welcome thousands of athletes from 41 countries in the Americas and the Caribbean this summer. Canada has had the honour of hosting the Games twice in the past, but it's a first for Toronto this year, and a first here at York. The Pan Am and Parapan Am Games are the world’s third largest international multi-sport games, held every four years immediately before the Olympic and Paralympic Summer Games.

The University will host the track and field portion of the Games in the new CIBC Pan Am/Parapan Am Athletic Stadium, as well as the tennis competition in what is being called the Canadian Tennis Centre, known locally as the Rexall Centre.

The Pan Am Games will be held July 10-August 15.
