IWF Constitution Reform Congress

IWF Constitution Reform Congress

From 29 Aug 2021 to 30 Aug 2021

The IWF Constitution Reform Congress shall be held in person. Therefore, Member Federations are expected to send their delegations to Doha. We hereby remind you that the IWF will cover flight tickets for only one (1) delegate on the condition that the flight is booked by IWF. After your registration is complete on the e-entry platform, the IWF will provide you with your flight tickets.
We are aware that in certain exceptional circumstances, some Member Federations, due to the situation of the pandemic, might be prevented from travelling to Doha. As an exceptional measure, in order to ensure that all Member Federations – even the absent ones – receive an equal opportunity to participate in the deliberation and vote, we shall provide those prevented with an opportunity to join the Congress via a special link.
Please note, however, that those Member Federations that shall use such opportunity will do so at their own risks and that the IWF shall not be liable for any claim resulting from any possible technical failures which will be deemed as a consequence of the Member Federations own decision to attend the Congress online.
If you are prevented to attend the event in person, please inform the IWF at
Deadline extension
We also know that in the recent weeks all Member Federations were focusing on the participation at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, therefore the deadline to register is extended until 10 August 2021.
