2021 IFPA Online World Footbag Freestyle Championships

Introduction

We are pleased to make an official announcement for the IFPA Online Freestyle Footbag World Championships 2021.

Like 2020, the online tournament will feature competition very similar to the events held at the actual World Championships, except players will have to compete remotely from home and not together at the same venue.

Due to the current pandemic that is sadly affecting the entire world, and our ability to travel anywhere having been significantly hindered, for now, we are creating an online event we hope the whole world of Freestyle Footbag players will be able to join. We want to underline that the event is run by IFPA and will represent the highest standard of organization and judging.

Concept

The concept of this tournament is simple: record a video showcasing your skills for each event in which you choose to participate, then just send them to us! After your entries have been submitted to our tournament coordinators, we will edit the submissions into a final showcase and publish it for the community to view together online, all while certified judges simultaneously watch and give scores.

The Global Final is set for the 5th of September 2021, and will be broadcast live from our studio. The show will feature submissions by the world’s top competitors, live commentary, special guests, video calls with the judges, and possibly … a BAP induction! Winners will be rewarded with prize money and tokens for their accomplishments. We are building a separate fund that will go to the event winners. If you would like to financially support the greatest players in our sport, please donate to our dedicated paypal account.

We hope to be together again soon, but in the meantime, get ready to enjoy the same level of community and passion you would normally see at the IFPA Footbag World Championships. This time will just be a little different; instead of being on stage performing amongst friends, you will be on a “stage” you create yourself, with all of the world watching. The only thing between us is our computer screens.
