Tickets presale for the 2013 IWF World Championships Wroclaw, POL

Tickets are available on internet at and at the points of sale, for example Empik stores. During the competition, there will be also an opportunity to buy single and reduced tickets in box offices in the Centennial Hall. Whole money from the ticket sales will be donated for rehabilitation of Julia Bonk – young daughter of Bartłomiej Bonk, polish leading weightlifter, Bronze Medallist in the Men’s 105kg bodyweight category at the London 2012 Olympic Games.

„When Szymon Kołecki, President of the Polish Weightlifting Federation, told me about this initiative, I was really surprised. I did not know what to say. For me and for my family it is a very touching idea. I would like to thank for it dearly in behalf of Julia, our beloved daughter. I am really touched. I want to thank Mr. Mariusz Jędra, Vice-President of the PWF, originator of this initiative and everyone, who supported it”, said Bartłomiej Bonk.

„Everyone in our weightlifters’ circle sympathises with Bartłomiej Bonk, so the decision to donate the money from ticket sales for his family was obvious for us. I heartily invite everyone for the Championships”, said President Szymon Kołecki.
