The IBSA Judo Committee is keen to put in place a full calendar of events for 2018, and has launched a call for countries to express interest in hosting events.
Here is the announcement from the committee:
The IBSA Judo Committee is arranging next year’s competition calendar. We are expecting the NPCs candidatures to send us the plans for arranging judo events in 2018.
- Canada will host the Pan-American Championships.
- IBSA Judo wants to arrange 2-3 joint World Cups together with IJF, as in Tashkent in 2017. (the venue and dates are not known yet).
- The IBSA Judo World Championships will be held at the end of September or beginning of October. (venue and dates are not known yet).
- It is probable that qualification for the Tokyo Paralympic Games will start with the World Championships.
- We suggest organizers add a training camp to the event, ensuring more activity for our judokas.
Our request is for you to send your proposals for events by the end of September
. The separate deadline for an official bid to host the World Championships is 1st November.
