Entry Standards

Goalball

After review of applications, the IBSA Goalball sub-committee selected 16 men’s teams and 16 women’s teams to participate in the 2019 IBSA Goalball & Judo International Qualifier. Selection was based on team performance at the 2017 IBSA World Goalball Championships followed by the rankings of teams within their regional qualification tournaments preceding the previous IBSA Goalball World Championships. 

Invited teams are now being asked to confirm their participation and start the formal entry process. If a team decides not to take their spot, it will be reallocated in the following ways:

  • To the best-ranked team from within the same region on the waiting list (in presented order below)
  • If a region is not able to occupy their full allocation, those spots left unoccupied will be allocated to teams by the IBSA Goalball sub-committee depending on when their application to participate was received (in brackets below). A region may not be allocated more than half the available tournament slots. 
     

IMPORTANT:  Given the nature of this competition, we can only accept applications from IBSA member federations of countries in good membership status.  

Please refer questions to IBSA Goalball Sports Director Alexey Baryaev:  goalball.sportdirector@ibsasport.org.
