The World Freestyle Football Association has announced today the opening of registrations for the 2022 edition of the WFFA Youth Championship, the global tournament aimed at the next generation of freestylers. This year’s Youth Championship, which will offer separate categories for boys and for girls, will change its platform and move from the old WFFA App to a more accessible format via Whatsapp: to sign up, participants only need to access the specific page of the competition in GameDay and fill in the corresponding online form before November 7th, 2022 at 23:59h CET.
The Youth Championship is an under-16 tournament, and hence anyone who wishes to participate will need to be 15 years of age or younger at the time of the closing of registrations on November 7th, 2022. No freestylers aged 16 or older will be accepted into the competition.
Once freestylers have registered correctly for the tournament, they will receive an email with a link to the Parental Form they will need to send back to the WFFA, conveniently signed by a parent or legal guardian, in order to participate in the competition. As soon as this process is completed, participants will get a message on Whatsapp (or an equivalent messaging platform for countries in which this system is not available) with instructions on how to send their qualification videos.
The 2022 edition of the WFFA Youth Championship will follow this structure:
- October 24th to November 7th: Registration period. No registrations will be accepted after November 7th
- November 9th to November 16th: Qualification stage. Freestylers will be asked to send their qualification videos between those dates. No videos will be accepted after November 16th
- November 29th to December 5th: Top64 stage in Circles format, all happening via Whatsapp
- December 12th to December 15th: Top16 stage in 1×1 battles format, all happening via Whatsapp
- December 17th: Grand Finals (Top8, Semifinals, Bronze Battles, Finals) happening on a live event; participants will get all information beforehand so they can prepare accordingly
The 2022 edition of the WFFA Youth Championship will use the Official Rules of Freestyle Football for its battles. The team of judges for the tournament will be announced on the official channels of the WFFA before the start of the qualification round. Stay tuned!
