The CB further decided that the committees shall come up with a tasks-description of the committee and a work-description of its members until the 15th of April 2009.
Registration fees for the WFC 2010
At its meeting in Budapest (03/2009) the CB decided to form a working group consisting of Mr. Tomas Jonsson and Mr. John Liljelund to come up with a proposal for a new system for participation fees and compensation for the participants in IFF events. The proposal will be distributed to the CB by end of January as decided.
The IFF CB decided to change already the registration fees for the Men’s WFC 2010 in Finland, which will be played with 16 teams (according to the working group proposal), in order to minimise the burden of the local organisers.
The Registration fees for the WFC 2010 are the following:
Direct qualified teams CHF 5.000 (prev. 4.000) Starts WFC 2010
Teams in the qualification round CHF 2.000 + referee costs (prev. 2.000) Starts WFC 2010
Teams having qualified for the final round shall then in addition pay the difference between the qualification fee and the full fee. The motivation to include the referee costs to the attending Associations is to encourage a member to organise a qualifying round, since both the participating teams and the IFF are taking over the biggest outside cost, namely those of the referees.
