The ISF is disappointed to announce that the Socca World Cup 2022 in Mexico will be postponed until 2024 or 2025.
The Mexican Local Organizing Commitee and the Mexican authorities were extremely supportive and have worked together during the past few weeks in order to make the best decision for the ISF, and it’s members, given that there were unpredicted factors for all those parties concerned.
We can categorically say that there are not safety issues in Mexico and this rumour was only a mistranslation. Cancun was always considered as an extremely safe destination and this is why we do not cancel the event, but instead postpone it until 2024 or 2025.
We will shortly be announcing a new Socca World Cup destination for the Socca World Cup 2022, we are looking for the best option among a number of European locations that are proposed for the event, to be played later in the summer or early autumn this year.
At the same time, we will officially announce the location of the Socca World Cup 2023, which has been in process for over a year.
