The next four years provide many opportunities for the U.S. team and its supporters. The 2017 World Championship in South Africa is followed by Mexico in 2018, the World Angling Games (the Olympiad
of fishing) in South Africa in 2019 and then the United States plans to host the World Championship in 2022. CIPS, has formally applied to the International Olympic Committee to recognize bass fishing as
an Olympic sport. U.S. Angling believes this four year plan will make this dream a reality and propel bass fishing and the fishing industry to the next level!
The World Championship will become the “Ryder Cup” of bass fishing.
Annually, U.S. Angling will send a “Dream Team” of the best professional bass anglers in the United States to compete against the countries across the world for Gold.
