Welcome to the culmination of the 2023-2024 Integrated Tournament Circuit and axe throwing season.


This year we are proud to announce the expansion of the IATC schedule and your favourite tournaments (Under 55, Under 65, Doubles, Close But No Cigar), the return of a beloved event (The Skills Challenger Series), and the addition of some new and exciting tournaments (Big Axe and Women's).


Homecoming on Sunday, June 16th, will host not only the Wilson Cup finals, but the finals from the Under 65, Doubles, and Women's Tournaments. These tournament finalists will be featured on the IATC Live Feed!


The Global Versus Showdown returns for a second year reunited with the familiar Challenger Team.


The Awards Ceremony will be held at Homecoming immediately after the final axes are thrown and the after party will go on into the night.


Join us this year in Toronto, Ontario, Canada for this celebration of champions from around the world!
