June 5, 2020

The World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) has named as the host city for the WBSC U-15 Baseball World Cup 2020 from 30 October to 8 November.

The tournament was originally scheduled from 14 to 23 August before being postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak. The announcement follows the confirmation on Tuesday that the WBSC Women’s Baseball World Cup will also be held in Tijuana from 12-21 November.

The WBSC U-23 Baseball World Cup 2020 is currently scheduled to officially restart the WBSC international baseball calendar, taking place from 30 September to 9 October in Ciudad Obregon and Los Mochis, also in Mexico.

Tijuana will host the fifth edition of the WBSC U-15 Baseball World Cup. It will be the third edition played in Mexico.

WBSC President Riccardo Fraccari said: “Having Tijuana confirmed as host of two premier WBSC World Cup events back-to-back represents how much baseball means to the city. This is the first World Cup double header in our history, providing a wonderful opportunity to celebrate baseball and sport as we look forward to the restart of the international calendar.”
