During the IOC meeting after the IYPT, IYPT Sweden presented a bid to host the IYPT final in 2025. An IYPT final will attract around 30 teams of 5 and two team leaders, will last for 7 days and include a number of cultural activities and outings.
The plan is that the event will be run in early July in Malmö with Malmö Borgarskola as the host for fights and for participants to stay in hotels (most likely Scandic). Our budget is approximately 2.7 million SEK and we have already got a promise of Silver Sponsorship from Jane Street. Big thanks to them!
The bid was accepted by the IYPT given that we can show more promises of funding by the IYPT’s EC meeting in November. If you know of or would like to help out with fundraising, then please get in touch with me (Sam). Any promises are of interest, even if a few larger donors are more interesting. We will be applying for a larger grant from Skolverket and we will be applying for a number of smaller grants from various foundations (stiftelser) in Sweden, and we are reaching out to industry to provide tournament sponsorship.
