Final Entry Opportunity Utilizing Cancelled Slots

We are grateful for the numerous applications we have received for the 2024 Mölkky World Championship in Hakodate.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, some slots have become available from the teams that were previously selected but have since cancelled. We are offering these slots as a final entry opportunity starting on 17 June to teams that were not selected in any previous rounds. Please refer to the following detail.

Caution Note: For those who won the lottery and chose “payment at convenience store” on the application, the payment procedure for the entry fee will be described in the email. Please complete the procedure by the deadline. Payment of the entry fee constitutes completion of the entry process. Please note that if the payment is not made by the deadline, your entry will be automatically cancelled.

Once the final entry teams are confirmed, we will announce the preliminary round pairings in early July.

■As of now, 655 teams from 16 countries are scheduled to participate.
