WAKO World Cup

It is with great pleasure that I introduce the Brazilian stage of the World Cup of Kickboxing to be held in Sao Paulo, one of the four largest cities in the world financial capital of South America, from 14th to 16th May 2010. I am personally very excited about the possibility of receiving the top athletes of today, from various countries around the world, which will enable a great exchange and development among member nations.
The Municipal Gymnasium Pacaembu, chosen for the event, is located in one of the most beautiful regions of São Paulo, near Paulista Avenue, the main financial center of Sao Paulo.
All event participants will have a special support, never offered on other steps, such as food, accommodation, internal transportation and exemption of registration fee, which is sure to attract the best athletes in the circuit in Brazil.
The event will have a structure worthy of the major professional circuits, such as lighting, stage of entry to the finals, screens and live broadcast by the channels BandSports the Bandeirantes Television Network and ESPN.
In the event, participants will have the opportunity to visit São Paulo and its attractions, a new experience.
