In order to ensure consistency between all IFSC World Cups and showcase event’s key stakeholders, the IFSC has defined the Event Branding guidelines, into the same document. 

Main event’s key stakeholders are:   
•   The IFSC
•   The Event Organiser
•   IFSC Sponsors
•   Event Organiser’s Sponsors  

Event Logo

The IFSC provides an Event logo for each World Cup to be used on all the promotional materials.

For certain materials, and in order to reduce costs, the Event Organiser may request to use the Event Logo without the date. In such case, the Event Organiser will seek the agreement of the IFSC.


Event Name

The World Cups will use the same wording: “IFSC Climbing World Cup" – "Discipline(s)" “City” Year”.
