In order to provide the IFA Congress with a sound basis for the decision about the hosts for IFA 2018 Fistball Women’s and IFA 2019 Fistball Men’s World Championships, the IFA marketing department created a new way of proceeding for the bidding process.

As a first step the basic requirements for hosting such an event by federations, clubs, countries or towns were collected in a slide-presentation.
This attached presentation can be requested of the IFA-Office ( from now on.

After the bidding process, which is explained to further detail below, the bids are evaluated by an IFA jury and the IFA marketing department and then presented to the delegates at the IFA congress.
The timetable is given by the date of the decision making at the IFA Congress:

1 June 2015 Information to all federations and interested hosts
by 15 July 2015 Official expression of interest by potential hosts 
17 July 2015 Dispatch of bidding documents by IFA-Office
by 18 September 2015 Return of the bidding documents by interested hosts 
by 25 September 2015 Dispatch of bidding documents to IFA jury

by 23 Oktober 2015 Assessment of bidding documents by IFA Marketing department
Proposal to IFA Congress
18 November 2015 Allocation of IFA Fistball Women’s and Men’s World Championship to hosts by IFA Congress

IFA expects a further development towards professionalism at events by this new procedure.
President Weiss: „We want to provide a sound basis to the delegates for their decision at the congress. World Championships are the highlights of our sport, we want to be prepared for the best requirements.“
