FISTF World Cup Rome 2022

The FISTF World Cup Rome 2022 is imminent and, as always, the local organising committee is preparing everything. The dates chosen are 16 – 17 and 18 September 2022.

Because of issues outside their control, the FISCT LOC has changed the location of the event – moving it to a place of excellence, Cinecittà World, which has previously hosted Italia’s got talent. It is a great location where all participants as well as friends and families can enjoy the experience as well as the sporting event.

By the end of June, the LOC will release an App for the World Cup for mobile phones and mobile media. Available on both Google Play and the App store, it will be possible to register to find out all the info on the event, take advantage of all the conventions developed and of the many initiatives created.
