Bidding for new events

The first step for bidding for any of our events is to send in an Intention to Bid notice. Once this has been accepted by the IRF Exec Com then the Bid Document itself (see further below) will need to be completed and sent in to IRF Admin. These need to be returned in full by the date set as the closing date for the bidding.

We are accepting bids for:

  • 2022 Euro Champs
  • 2023 Euro Champs
  • 2023 World Rafting Championship – Intention to Bid must be returned to IRF Admin as soon as possible. Due date for bids has been extended into 2022.
  • 2024 World Rafting Championship – Intention to Bid must be returned to IRF Admin as soon as possible. Due date for bids has been extended into 2022. 
  • 2025 World Rafting Championship – Intention to Bid must be returned to IRF Admin by 31st Oct 2022. Due date for bids is 31 Dec 2022
