In 2019, in addition to the three Continental Cups, the WFTDA will add two Developmental Cups during the WFTDA competitive season to promote rankings play in regions that do not yet have enough teams at the rankings level required to run a Continental Cup. To promote the equalization of rankings across regions, the WFTDA Rankings and Competitive Play Committees will create the tournament structure and  solicit one or two teams from other regions via a scholarship program to compete in the event. Participating local teams will then be required to play sanctioned and/or Strength Factor Challenge games against other teams in the region post-tournament to share their rankings benefit.

The WFTDA is seeking bids for hosts for the following Continental Cups:

  • North America – East (Friday-Sunday from mid- to late August)
  • North America – West (Friday-Sunday from mid- to late August)
  • Europe (Saturday-Sunday from late September/October)

And for Developmental Cups between February 1 – June 30, 2019 for:

  • South America
  • Australia/New Zealand
