Check out all the available info on the IWF Worlds in Riyadh!

The IWF recently published the Regulations concerning the IWF World Championships, taking place in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, from September 4-17, 2023. This important document is aimed at informing all participants in the event about the deadlines for entries and fee payments, athletes’ eligibility criteria, registration links, visa procedures, local transportation, anti-doping requirements, and the provisional schedule of the competition.

Important dates to be noted include July 4, 2023 (two months before the start of the event) as the deadline to send the Athletes’ Final Entry list for the Championships. By that same time, the entry fees must be paid, so that IWF and the Organising Committee can validate each delegation’s attendance. By August 4, 2023 (one month before the beginning of the IWF showcase), accommodation and transportation forms, as well as visa requests must be received.

Media representatives wishing to cover the Championships must also electronically submit their applications by July 4, 2023.

The IWF World Championships is the biggest event on the 2023 calendar and is a mandatory competition in the Olympic qualification path for the 2024 Games in Paris.
