IQA events 2019 - Bid package deadline update

Published: 17 July 2018
Written by IQA Staff

As was announced shortly after World Cup, the IQA will be changing our schedule for IQA Event bidding so that we can use the lessons learned from this World Cupto ensure high quality events in the future. 

By July 31 we will be releasing extra information to accompany the initial bidding package. This extra information will include clearer expectations around the relationship between the IQA and the bidding organisation, as well as additional questions we'd like addressed in bids.

Following this Continental Games bids will be due September 15 and World Cup bids will be due October 1 so that bidders have sufficient time to use and address the new information. The timeline for other parts of the bidding process (ie site visits and announcement) will also be delayed but we expect to have locations announced for Continental Games late 2018 and for World Cup very early 2019.

If you have any questions about bidding for these events, or would like feedback or assistance in developing your bid please reach out to us by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Some bidders have already done so, don't be afraid to ask if you have questions - working together is the best way to get high quality tournaments in future!
