Following the biggest ever IBSA Blind Football World Championships in Madrid last month, the IBSA Football Committee would like to remind member organisations that the bidding process to host regional championships next year remains open until the end of this month.

The committee is seeking hosts to stage the following championships:

2019 African Championships
2019 American Championships
2019 Asian Championships
2019 Central American Championships
2019 European Championships Division 1
2019 European Championships Division 2

A number of these championships offer direct qualification for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic games.

The top eight teams at the 2017 European Championships in Berlin, Germany, qualify automatically for the 2019 European Championships Division 1 and are invited to bid to host the event. The championships should take place around the end of August or beginning of September.

The 2019 European Championships Division 2 will also be a qualifier for Division 1, with the top two teams given slots to play. The Division 2 event should take place in spring 2019.

IBSA member organisations wishing to bid to host any of the above events are invited to express their interest by email to Mr Ulrich Pfisterer, Chair of the IBSA Football Committee ([email protected]), with copy to Mr Henk van Aller, IBSA CEO ([email protected]), by Tuesday July 31st.
