Following in the footsteps of the World DanceSport Federation’s “Vision 2012” and “2020 VISION”, the International Federation of Cheerleading assembled a working group which met in Singapore on the 2-3 August 2015 under the theme “IFC Vision 2020 Strategic Meeting”.
The recommendations from the two days of broad-based discussions are expected to lay the foundation for the further development of IFC in a number of key areas including organisational structure, membership, integration with WDSF, education and competitions.
The advance booking period for the 8th IFC Cheerleading World Championships is now under way.
Tickets are available from leading German ticket sales agents. Due to different structuring of charges between agents, it may be that tickets in the same price category are offered at different rates. The CWC 2015 Local Organising Committee only determines the basic rates, while each sales partner decides the amount of additional fees. For instance, one sales partner might charge a higher processing fee, while the other charges a higher postage lump sum for sending a registered letter. One partner might charge an additional fee for ordering via internet, while the other might allow on-site collection without any additional fee. Hence, the actual final price depends also on the preferences of the ticket purchaser. If you prefer to print your ticket comfortably at home, you might pay more than if you get the tickets directly at the event venue etc.
