Guideline for Supporter Donations – 2024 Mölkky World Championship in Hakodate

We’re excited to announce that the “2024 Mölkky World Championship in Hakodate” will take place from Friday, August 23 to Sunday, August 25, 2024! Our efforts to promote Mölkky across Japan have been recognized by the International Mölkky Organisation (IMO), and we’re honored to host the first World Championship outside of Europe.

This event is a fantastic opportunity to boost Mölkky’s popularity in Japan and promote communication that transcends age, gender, and ability. It’s also a chance to showcase the beauty and charm of Hakodate, Hokkaido, and Japan to the world.

Given the massive Mölkky boom in Japan, we’re planning to accommodate as many teams as possible by using two venues. However, the costs for staffing, security, shuttle buses, and other expenses are substantial, and we need your help to make this event a success.

We’re reaching out to ask for your support. Your donations will help us cover these essential expenses and ensure that the 2024 Mölkky World Championship is an unforgettable event for all participants and spectators. Any contribution, big or small, will make a huge difference.

Thank you for your generosity and support!
