DEAR WMFC PARTICIPANTS AND FRIENDS

It is our privilege and honour to invite you to Prague for 2018 WMFC. We hope you will fall in love with the city, because Prague is said to be “the heart of Europe” and is sometimes called “the mother of cities”. At almost every step you make on streets of Prague with their unique stories, you will have opportunity to discover the glorious history of a former imperial and royal city, which today is the lively and modern capital of the Czech Republic.

Our tournament grew to a major sport event. In 2018, it is expected to host guests from up to 24 nations of 5 continents. This means more than 1000 visitors. We aspire to organize an unforgettable event, which will give you not only a chance to play with good friends and to challenge new opponents but also to get acquainted with our beautiful COUNTRY.
