Fistball is part of the CSIT World Sport Games (WSG) since 2019 in Spain. The CSIT (International Workers & Amateurs Sports Confederation) has announced the host and the dates for the next edition of the World Sport Games: The CSIT WSG will be relocated from Roma to Cervia (ITA) and take place from 5-10 September 2023. Within this multi-sports event Fistball hosts a Fistball Amateur World Cup tournament.
