The IFA Fistball World Tour enters its sixth season in 2024. 25 tournaments in eight countries will take place from March to September as part of the tour. The season opener will take place on March 2-3 at Clube Mercês in Curitiba. The highlights of the tour will be the major tournaments in Novo Hamburgo (BRA), Porto Alegre (BRA), Elgg (SUI), Stammheim (GER), Jona (SUI) and Widnau (SUI).

The basic tournament structure remains almost the same: the first tournament will be held in March: The tournaments in South America, including the two Brazilian Major events in Novo Hamburgo and Porto Alegre, will traditionally start in March. The first European tournament of the World Tour will then take place in Karlsdorf (Germany) at the beginning of April, before the next two Major tournaments will be held in Elgg (Switzerland) and Stammheim (Germany) as a double pack on two weekends in a row. In August, the World Tour will then make its traditional stop in Jona and Widnau (both Switzerland). There will also be other tournaments in Europe and South America, as well as in the USA and India.

“In 2024, we will once again see many exciting tournaments all over the world,” Gastao Englert, Chairman of the IFA Sports Commission and the newly established World Tour Commission, is absolutely convinced: “I am delighted that many organizers have established themselves as permanent tour stops and I am excited to see which teams will be able to top the world rankings this year,” says Englert. IFA President Jörn Verleger is also looking forward to the next edition of the World Tour: “It’s great that the tour continues to be an important part of the fistball calendar. With the new IFA World Tour Commission, we want to show that the World Tour will continue to develop in the future and that we can further increase its importance in the coming years. I am convinced that we will reach a new level with the new commission, with our Head of Sport Gastao Englert at the head.”
