The Men’s and Women’s U18 Fistball World Championships will be held in Chile in 2024. The U18 event will be held in Llanquihue from October 30 to November 2, 2024.

The International Fistball Association (IFA) is pleased to announce the venue for their premier youth event. Club Gimnástico Alemán de Llanquihue from Chile will host the next U18 Fistball World Championships in 2024. The exact date is from 30 October to 2 November 2024. The club is a very experienced host and receives support from its city and the regional government. In addition to several South American championships, Llanquihue has hosted the 1992 Men’s World Championship, the 2006 U18 World Championships and the 2015 Masters World Cup.

“Llanquihue has one of the most beautiful Fistball venues in the world and the event site offers a unique flair due to the impressive panorama with the lake and the volcanoes. The club has been investing a lot in youth work for some time and the organizers are extremely motivated. You can see how important the organization of the next U18 World Championship is to the people in the club. Numerous U18 national teams from all continents will participate in next year’s World Championships,” said IFA President Jörn Verleger.

“We are very proud to be the host of the next U18 Fistball World Championships. We receive great support from the city and also from our region, without which we would not be able to hold this event. We look forward to welcoming the best youth teams in the world to Llanquihue to celebrate a wonderful
Fistball festival in 2024,” says Rodrigo Böttger, President of the Chilean Fistball Federation. The signing of the contract took place last weekend in front of 150 youth players. All games will be played in one place, so short distances for athletes and spectators are guaranteed.
