We will try to keep to this schedule, but there may be some cases in which we cannot follow exactly as it is planned above.
Our goal with this schedule is to give each contest’s local organizers at least two years of preparation time to be able to make a good, well-planned contest.
Previously for WYYC14, MNC Champions were seeded to the FINALS of the World Yo-Yo Contest.
Starting with World Yo-Yo Contest 2015, the Top 3 in each division of each MNC will instead be seeded to the SEMI-FINALS of WYYC15.
EYYC (Poland), AP (Singapore), Las Vegas Open (United States) and Latin America (Mexico) are the qualifying Multi-National Contests for WYYC15.
Not only EYYC, AP and Pan-America, but in the near future, we see a strong possibility of other regions being able to host their own MNC. Therefore, in order to accommodate all MNCs to be seeded to the World Contest, IYYF has decided to seed the MNC winners to the semi-finals instead. Furthermore, we value the quality of skill and performance of the top placing winners of MNCs and have decided to seed the top 3 from each division of all MNCs.
*Previous year’s World Champions are still seeded to the finals as they were in past years.
*National Champions remain seeded to the Semi-Finals, as they were last year.

We are proud to announce that the World Yo-Yo Contest and the newly formed International Yo-Yo Federation (IYYF) are going to merge into one organization, with the IYYF taking over the running of the World Yo-Yo Contest.
IYYF is a nonprofit organization that unites national associations and is designed to become the governing body for yo-yoing as a sport. Starting in 2014 the IYYF will be responsible for hosting the World Yo-Yo Contest. After 14 years as chairman of the contest, Gregory Cohen is passing the torch to the IYYF so that, together with national yo-yo associations, the IYYF will host the WYYC in countries around the world. The planned schedule for the next four years is:
* 2013 United States of America (Orlando, Florida)
* 2014 Czech Republic (Prague)
* 2015 Japan (Tokyo)
* 2016 United States of America
The exact locations and dates of these events will be announced when they become available.
We will do our best to help the yo-yo community grow, support contests and national associations around the world and much more. You can find more information at http://iyyf.org and at http://worldyoyocontest.com
