At the recent Presidential Board Meeting in Al-Ain it was decided that with effect from 2014, the World Youth Championships will be split into two separate events.  The growing number of entries is limiting potential bidding federations.

 

The U8, U10 and U12 events (Lower Youth) will be allocated a slot in the calendar alongside the World Junior (August 1-16), although not necessarily in the same place.

 

The U14, U16 and U18 events (Upper Youth) will occupy the same dates in the calendar currently allocated to the existing World Youth Championships (October 16-31).

 

Every Continent will have the opportunity to bid for either event in the first year.  There will be a separate six year cycle for Upper and Lower Youth with Europe only able to bid on three occasions within each cycle.
