WCL Sanctioned Events Postponed Until 2021

September 22, 2020

OTTAWA – After consultation with the board of directors, Wrestling Canada Lutte (WCL) will not sanction any wrestling competitions in Canada until 2021.

The decision follows consultation with the Member PTSOs and was made to protect the safety and wellbeing of athletes, coaches, officials, and the broader wrestling community.

WCL sanctioned training activities, participation in international events, or events at the local or provincial level are not affected by this decision. The Senior and Junior World Championships are still currently in United World Wrestling’s event calendar, slated to be held in December in Belgrade, Serbia. No decisions have been made yet regarding Canada’s participation at those events.
