CORSIER-SUR-VEVEY, Switzerland (January 29) -- The United World Wrestling Sport Department, in collaboration with Megaphone Live, has created a comprehensive guide for those looking to organize wrestling events.
Over the past several years, as the professionalization of the international wrestling has increased and viewership boomed, stakeholders and organizers have requested consistent and clear guidelines for the Field of Play. The updated handbook is packaged to easily identify the location of everything from scoreboards, to furniture, and positions for television. The documents also provide you the exact measurements for items such as the award podium, tables for the technical delegate, and the boxes used by coaching staffs.
“We are very proud to offer this new tool to all our National Wrestling Federations but also to every Wrestling Organizer. With such precise documents, the preparation of the event will be managed smoothly, and the respect of our requirements will be easier to follow,” said UWW Sport Director Jean-Daniel REY.
Readers interested in the details of the plans can access them, for free, here. (You will need a ‘Sketchup’ viewer to access the 3D model.)
“We have invested heavily in Wrestling’s sport presentation over the past six years and a fundamental part are details around the field of play and venue layouts,” said United World Wrestling president Nenad LALOVIC. “These documents are integral for us to deliver competitions seamlessly and we wanted to make this available to all our member federations. As UWW improves, the whole wrestling community should benefit.”
