Dear Sirs,

By the present, after several months of work, I am delighted to inform you of the great opportunity for your federation to participate with a national team in the 5th Islamic Solidarity Games, that will take place under the IOC patronage in Konya, Republic of Turkey, from 9th to 18th August 2022, for the Disciplines of Low Kick – Full Contact – Point Fighting. I would like to thank in particular Salim Kayici, WAKO IF Vice President, for his engagement and energy to enable the sport of Kickboxing to be included in this prestigious event.

This is a Senior Male / Female competition, open to WAKO affiliated and fully compliant member states, currently recognised by the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation Member States: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Member_states_of_the_Organisation_of_Islamic Cooperation

I remind you that following WAKO rules and regulations the eligibility for the participation to these Games is reserved only to WAKO national Federation/Association members that have fulfilled all their members’ obligations in that year (including payment of the annual affiliation fee to WAKO IF).

We also encourage you without delay to contact the National Olympic Committee in your country. Hopefully with their support you can attend this important event, with your respective teams.
