As you probably know, out of 7 possible cities for holding of the 3rd KWU Kyokushin World Championship 2017, Kaliningrad and Yekaterinburg came to the finals. The work team of the World Championship Organizing Committee, whose members visited both of the cities, properly examined them.
The work team faced a difficult choice, because both of the cities were ready to host such a huge event.
However, in a result of a comparative analysis of the objective factors, Yekaterinburg was chosen as the city of holding of the World Championship! The championship will be held on December 9-10, 2017 in the Palace of Game Sports (DIVS).
