It was announced in August 2014 by the IFBA (International Federation of Boomerang Associations) President, Gunter Moeller, that the next Boomerang World Cup and Individuals World Championship will be held in Cologne, Germany in July or August 2016. The exact date of the venue is yet to be announced.
It will be the 17th World Boomerang Cup, with the first ever World Cup held in Amherst, USA in 1987. Europe has some of the worlds best boomerang throwers – Fridolin Frost, Manuel Schutz, Andrea Sgattoni, Stephan Spirghi and Gunter Moeller, to name just a few, all of whom will be participating. It is sure to be a great event and nearly 80 competitors from around the world have already submitted their interest on the Facebook site.
