IATF TOURNAMENTS

IATF AXE THROWING TOURNAMENTS

There are many opportunities to compete for axe throwers with the IATF that culminate with the International Axe Throwing Championship (IATC) in early summer. The IATF supports multiple events year round for all levels of competition and different styles of throwing to provide many opportunities for throwers to compete in exciting and unique events on their path to participation in The IATC Wilson Cup!


The IATF League Qualification Period runs from March to March each year. 


IATF Integrated Tournament Circuit

The IATF Integrated Tournament Circuit was announced in July 2023. The circuit consists of sanctioned member tournaments that are categorized into tiers: Majors, Grand Slams, and the International Axe Throwing Championship. The top 4 finishers from Grand Slams will be guaranteed a spot in Round 2 of the Wilson Cup. The winner of Majors will be guaranteed a spot in Round 2 of the Wilson Cup. You can see a more detailed description of the Integrated Tournament Circuit here.

IATF clubs may host any and all styles of tournament throughout the year (Standard, Premier, Big Axe, Marathon, or other creative formats), whether they are part of the Integrated Circuit or not, with approved tournaments reflected in the calendar below. Tournaments that are included in the Integrated Circuit are listed as Majors or Grand Slams.


Regional Tournaments

The IATF Regionals are a set of nine tournaments held on a single day across the IATF regions of the world. Regionals have always come with the opportunity to compete with the best, win prize money, and make your name and skills known throughout the world.  The winners from each Region are guaranteed a spot in Round 2 of the IATC Wilson Cup.


Round 1 of the IATC

All participating IATF member locations who held eligible league seasons in either stream (Premier or Standard) throughout the qualification period are open to hosting Round 1 at their particular facilities. The full list of those eligible for participation in Round 1 will be available shortly after completion of the qualification period in March. Round 1 competition is scored using the Premier ruleset.


Round 2 of the IATC

The Finals of the International Axe Throwing Championship (IATC) are hosted in Toronto, Canada each year. This competition is held over several days in June when the throwers advancing from Round 1 compete in a double elimination, Premier rules tournament for the ultimate prize, The Wilson Cup.

Should a location have closed in the interim, their players will be allowed to compete for that club's vacant spot(s) at their nearest IATF location.


The most current listing of IATF member tournaments and events on the Road to the IATC taking place currently are found below.
