Cancellation of World Yo-Yo Contest 2021 Budapest

Given the circumstances regarding the continued spread of the novel corona virus (COVID-19), the IYYF has decided to cancel the World Yo-Yo Contest 2021 in Budapest. The new WYYC planned schedule is as follows:

  • Summer 2021 in Budapest, Hungary -> Online Contest
  • Summer 2022 in Japan

Once we know the detailed dates for the future World Yo-Yo Contests and have made the necessary seeding rule adjustments, we will announce here.

Cancellation Announcement

Based on the slow vaccine rollout around the world and therefore the fact that many people still won’t be able to travel and attend the World YoYo Contest in person this summer we are cancelling the Budapest event.⁣

For the 2021 season we are working on bringing the World YoYo Contest to everyone around the world as a virtual experience. This will make it possible for players and fans of yo-yo to participate from every corner of the world, especially for those who never attended Worlds before. This also opens us as organisers new range of possibilities for the contest.⁣

We kindly ask for patience from those who registered to the 2020-2021 Budapest contest. We are in the process of arranging refunds for all of the competitors.⁣

Thank you for your support and keep an eye out for more information regarding the 2021 WYYC Virtual Experience!⁣
