The IBJJF has announced that it will hold the 2020 Masters Worlds tournament in December. The 25th edition of the IBJJF World Championships is also pending, and the IBJJF said it will announce whether Worlds will occur by November 10.
The IBJJF has officially stated that:
- 2020 World Master is booked and will take place from Dec 14th*-20th in Orlando, FL.
- 2020 World Adult is pending, based on travel restrictions and will also be reserved for Dec 14th*-20th in Orlando,FL. Final word on if it will be confirmed or not will be on November 10th.
The registration deadline for Masters Worlds is December 4, with an early registration deadline of November 13.
Worlds is usually scheduled for the final week of May, and Masters Worlds normally takes place in August. Those events were canceled due to the COVID pandemic, but the IBJJF has made up for lost time this fall. Earlier this month, the Pan Championships was the first major tournament to return after the season was postponed. No-Gi Pans is scheduled for mid-November.
Since suspending the season in March, the IBJJF has now held four tournaments and has four more scheduled including Masters Worlds.
This would be the first time Worlds will be held outside of Long Beach, CA, since 2007, and will be the first time that Masters Worlds will be outside of Las Vegas since 2015.
