It is not new that the G event circuit changes depending on the continent in which it takes place. Europe has the most competitive circuit with a large number of ranked championships, while Pan Am region, for example, has very few and practically zero in the southern part of that continental union.

Much has been claimed about how expensive it is to carry out a G ranked event, so we decided to talk to different organizers and those who wanted to host them and indeed we discovered that the majority mentioned very high costs and that they varied from each other.

 

What is the actual cost of the WT GMS license?

 

To solve the question of how much it really costs to host a G ranked event, we decided to go to the source: The World Taekwondo itself, in this case its Secretary General, Mr. Hoss Rafaty, who answered the following:

Mr. Rafaty, we would like to have information regarding the costs stipulated by the WT to carry out G1 and G2 events and their distribution across a continent.
