HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
The Federation for International FootGolf has released the second update to the world tour for players and organisers. Our Board of Directors is working with the FIFG Member Countries who are waiting for their affiliated course operators to confirm places and dates; along with the organisers of FIFG Approved continental tours like the EFT, The Tour of the Americas and The Pacific FootGolf Tour; with six Live Scoring & Ranking Software providers, etc., to launch the third update to the FIFG World Tour, World Ranking and Annual Calendar 2017 on January 23rd.
Since no Major tournaments have been assigned yet, starting on January 1st, 2017, all FIFG Member countries will have the same opportunity to submit their applications to host a Major in their Region. Presidents may now contact the Board of Directors and request their passwords to have access to the terms and conditions to apply online. By the end of next week the Board of Directors will meet again and will connect with our members to discuss all matters regarding the worldwide competitions.
We have received requests and unofficial applications from course operators, private event organisers and other organisations not affiliated with us, to host FIFG-50/100/250/500 and Major World Tour tournaments in coutries where we already have representatives. It is important to mention that under no circunstances will the FIFG conduct business in any shape of form with any person or entity not afiliated to our organization in that country. If you are interested, please contact the FIFG member in your country. Thank you for understanding!
If the FIFG is not present in your country, the Board of Directos will evaluate your request with one of our approved continental tour organisers and will consider the possibility to support a promotional tournament. It will not be included in the World Calendar and it won't have any points for the FIFG World Tour or World Ranking, until a national organisation in that country becomes part of the Federation for International FootGolf.
Please visit www.fifg.org under world tour / players to have access to our 2nd update.
If you are affiliated to an FIFG Member Country, please contact them if you have more questions or want to register to the FIFG World Tour 2017. You cannot register directly with the FIFG. For those players who live in countries where the FIFG is not yet present please contact us directly using the CONTACT FORM on our website.
The Players Committee, Rules Committee and Statutes & Law Committee will be announced on January 15th, 2017.
Thank you for your support and Happy New Year!
On behalf of FIFG Board of Directos
