Postponement of World Yo-Yo Contest 2020

Given the current circumstances regarding the spread of the novel corona virus (COVID-19), the IYYF has decided to postpone the World Yo-Yo Contest 2020 in Budapest to the summer of 2021. The new WYYC planned schedule is as follows:

  • Summer 2020 (Postponed to 2021)
  • Summer 2021 in Budapest, Hungary
  • Summer 2022 in Japan

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


Our favourite time of the year is in August when we get together with hundreds of passionate yo-yo players for the World YoYo Contest. After a lot of discussion, in the present circumstances and based on the information of medical professionals around the world we have to postpone the Budapest contest to summer 2021 due to widespread concerns about COVID-19.

We couldn’t ask competitors, audience, judges and our staff to make summer travel plans in this time of uncertainty.

For players who have already registered to compete: we will transfer your registration to the new date of the Budapest World YoYo Contest.

We will continue to work through this situation and will keep you updated as further arrangements are made.

See you soon in Budapest and stay safe!
