World level competition
World level competitions are the highest level of competition in CP Football, and have included different names over the history and development of the sport. In the past these have included World Games, World Championships, Interconintental Cup and World Cup.
Currently IFCPF has two tournaments at the highest level which happen every two years:
- IFCPF World Cup - The most prestigious event in the CP Football international competition cycle, where the top teams in the World compete to become World Champion.
- IFCPF World Championships - Sitting below the IFCPF World Cup, the IFCPF World Championships provides a top level competition for the next set of teams which have not qualified to compete in the World Cup.
Combined, these two events form the pinnacle of CP Football competition for national teams. In addition, the rankings of the these two tournaments are combined when awarding rankings points with the teams from the World Cup and then the teams from the World Championships ranked in one list to award the ranking points.
For the first time, in 2022 the combination of these two events will see 23 teams competing at the highest level of CP Football and receiving ranking points accordingly.
