The WFFA opens the bidding process for the host destinations of the 2025 competitive circuit

The World Freestyle Football Association has announced today the opening of the bidding process to select the cities that will host the major events of the official Freestyle Football competitive circuit during the 2025 season, including the five physical competitions of the Pulse Series and the jewel of the crown of the tour – the World Freestyle Football Championship.

The Pulse Series of Continental Championships will not only crown the very best freestylers on each continent of the world, but also work as a qualifier for the official World Freestyle Football Championship. These events provide two days of action-packed fun for a live audience, as well as reaching a digital audience of over 200 million GenZ eyeballs worldwide. 

Just as in 2024, all applicants will be required to follow a process that will allow the WFFA experts to evaluate their proposal, including not just the physical facilities the host destinations can offer to the participant athletes but also the values and adequacy of the candidacy.

The selection procedure will feature four stages, during which the candidates will be asked to provide key information about their proposal. The process will include the reception of all expressions of interest by June 21st, the confirmation of shortlisted destinations announced on July 1st, site visits to all shortlisted options before September 27th, and the announcement of the selected host destinations at the World Freestyle Football Championship 2024.

Dan Wood, Head of Partnerships of the WFFA, said: “Off the back of the World Freestyle Football Championship 2023 in Nairobi, which was live-streamed on TikTok, we now have more GenZ eyeballs on the events than ever before. Over 300M people worldwide engage with the content from the events, which presents a huge opportunity for Destinations to showcase themselves. We want to encourage any destination worldwide to get creative and be a part of our future with unique venues and experiences for the athletes.”

Lucaso Škoda, Head of Operations of the WFFA, added: “Freestyle Football events adapt to essentially any environment, and I would love to see more mid-sized towns and cities welcome the sport. We have worked with some fantastic Destinations in the past and really enjoy promoting where we travel with the athletes, so we’re really looking forward to doing the same with new, fantastic places!”.
