World Skateboarding, the leading international skateboarding events management company, will host the first-ever Latin American Skateboarding Championships in Lima, Peru in 2017. The Inca Cup will include the Latin American Skateboarding Championships and the Peru Skateboarding Championships, which will take place September 9-10, 2017.
The street style contests will be held in Peru’s capital of Lima with a number of “Skateboarding for Hope” and pro tours scouring the country in search of the best skateboarding talent while helping underprivileged kids to start skateboarding.
“We are hosting the Inca Cup in Peru to bring hope, inspiration and sustainable economic and social influences to the local community,” said Tim McFerran, president of World Skateboarding. “After successfully hosting skate contests in South Africa, US and Turkey, we have seen tremendous development among young skaters as well as positive growth to the local economy, creating a sustainable legacy.”
World Skateboarding signed a multiyear contract to host this valuable contest in Peru through 2020 with the Peru National Olympic Committee (NOC) starting September 2017 through 2020, providing Peru with two professional tours, Skateboarding for Hope Peru, which includes eight city stops, as well as the two day finals in Lima.
World Skateboarding will work with local TV production teams to broadcast the skate events as well as manage the event website and social media presence to ensure maximum event coverage. The Inca Cup will be part of the Grand Prix circuit.
