2019 Tournament Chart for World Food Championships Is Revealed
UPDATED (7.26.19) The World Food Championships (WFC) just released its 2019 Main Event Tournament Chart, one of its most anticipated competition announcements annually. This overview chart is a helpful snapshot of all the key required ingredients and category sponsors for WFC’s 8th annual championship, which will debut in Dallas this October.
"We are very excited about this year’s Tournament Chart for WFC 2019," said Mike McCloud, President/CEO of WFC. "As we prepared for our big debut in Dallas, we worked with existing and new partners to develop a wide spectrum of innovative products and challenges. To have infusions like CBD, caviar, wagyu, and bison for the first time is quite innovative and remarkable for one event.”
The five-day Food Sport tournament is on the path for a record-breaking year, with over half of its ten official categories already over capacity. For 2019, WFC has also increased the number of ancillary competitions to give Food Champs additional opportunities to win extra cash during the Main Event.
