World Boccia is looking for a city to host the 2026 World Boccia Championships. The World Boccia Championships is the highlight in the calendar of World Boccia events and takes place once every four years. The fourth edition of the World Boccia Championships was excellently hosted by Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, in 2022.
