The 2024 ADCC world championships are fast-approaching and the promotion is already putting in the work to prepare for it by arranging the first trials event of the schedule. There has been no news on whether the standard format of trials are changing in any way, but this does seem unlikely seeing as the format is tried and tested. The only thing that is likely to differ from the trials leading up to ADCC 2022 is that the promotion should not need to cancel the second Asia and Oceania trial again.
If everything does continue as it has done in recent years, there will be a total of eight different trials events spread all across the world throughout 2023 and 2024. There will be two events held at different dates in each continent of North America and South America, while Europe, the Middle-East, and Africa combine to make one area along with Asia and Oceania. The first of these trials for ADCC 2024 has now been confirmed as the European, Middle-East, and African trial and it will take place on the 16th of September, 2023 and it will be staged in Poland. This will mean that the remaining seven trials will take place over the course of approximately one year before ADCC 2024 takes place.
The man who will be responsible for the ADCC world championships and the trials leading up to it for an unprecedented third consecutive time in 2024, Mo Jassim, also commented on the news himself to give further information on the upcoming first trials event:
“If you want to compete at ADCC 2024 this is your chance. East coast trials will be in October 2023. First Asian trials will be held in December 2023.”
The news that the first ADCC trials event that gives competitors an opportunity to qualify for the 2024 ADCC world championships was announced in a post to the promotion’s official Instagram account:
