Where will Worlds be held in 2024? (or should be held)

Both online and in-person. FIRST has historically held 2 championships for more “pomp and circumstance”, so they have not been able to claim the award.

Hmmm, I happen to have a picture of one of those trophies. They do put the vex trophies to shame. :sunglasses:

Woosh (the team on the right) let us borrow a controller tether cable at worlds since our controller disconnected and we forgot to bring one. Overall they’re just a really good and kind team.

although you’re correct, holding a tournament in a big hub city will help alleviate costs despite the fact some teams will have to connect no matter what. even if a team travelling from shanghai to chicago has to connect through san fransisco, the flight from san fran to chicago will be cheaper than the flight from san fran to indianapolis, due to the fact there’s more demand for flights to hub airports.

same could be said for dallas and atlanta.

If it was in Hawaii, why would it have to be inside?

I’m totally down to have Worlds in the middle of Diamond Head.

That was only for a brief period 2017-19. There was one championship this year and will be for at least the next two seasons, all in Houston.

I love how absolutely no one said Cleveland, I’ve never been there nor will I be, it sounds like a sadder more depressing version than Philly. Hawaii has been a hit surprisingly, more so than Florida. Maybe the Florida man stories scared off people?

Also, all it takes is strong gust of wind to blow you disc off course and cause it to miss.

London??? (or somewhere else in the UK, have to give it a shout out to reduce travel costs!)

There’s already Kalahari. No need to believe in a non-existent state any more than we already do.

Nobody is interested in visiting Japan?

We can always have a post-worlds onsen party.

Too expensive.
Rental of MICE space is just too expensive in Singapore.

London doesn’t have anywhere big enough. Excel has enough exhibition space for the divisions, but no Dome equivalent.
The NEC in Birmingham has enough space for the divisions and the Resort World Arena for a Dome, but is a 2 hour drive from Heathrow.
