IFSC Event Evaluation Criteria

With the goal of improving the quality of the events, the IFSC has created a table to summarise the main criteria of selection for IFSC events. These criteria have been identified as both crucial for the running of events and/or important to achieve in the coming years. The evaluation of all candidatures conducted by the IFSC is based on the analysis of such criteria, which can be viewed here.

The IFSC supports National Federations with programs that can create a legacy for the community and the Country. Such support is concretely released with tailored-made support in structuring programmes for development of National Federations and recommendations on infrastructure, sport personnel and event management, coaches and athletes’ development. Contact Us for any further information.
