• A proper sport hall, which covers all needs and is close to the accommodation.

• Accommodation (ideally in one place), which provides all facilities (places for meetings, weigh-in rooms, etc.).

• The host association must follow the regulation of the International Judo Federation (IJF) Event Organisation Guides.


All potential candidates must send their letter of interest to bnorbertusz@gmail.com and jtardos@realsas.hu by 21 June 2016.
