Update concerning the competition and rules

  • 100% of the kubb need to be inside the string
  • Base kubbs are supposed to be placed in front of the string but as close as possible

Explanation of drawing 6vs6

Under “Drawn and directly qualified teams” you can find an explanation of the drawing in 6vs6. You can also find a list of the top 32 ranked teams that are directly qualified for the Saturday group stage. The ranking is based from the last year final results.

Opening of registration

The registration is now open and will be open until 2023-07-19. You will find the registration under “Competition info 1vs1” and “Competition info 6vs6”. From this year you will need to have at least tree players with non swedish passport or ID to have the possibility to register your team as a non swedish team. This is due to the drawing where the foreign teams will be separated in different groups in the Friday qualification stage.

Tournament schedule 2023

We have decide to make some adjustments in the tournament schedule for 2023. We believe that those adjustments will make the tournament even more attractive for all participators, both in 1vs1 and 6vs6. Down below you can see our adjustments for 2023:


  • The qualification round in the 1vs1 tournament will be played on an own day on Thursday, which is the new inauguration day of the WC. This means that the World Championship will be played in tree days instead of two. The 1vs1 qualification will be played in a Swiss-System, which results in at least 8 games for each player. More information regarding the Swiss-system and how to play it you can find under “Competition info 1vs1”.
  • The knock out round in 1vs1 will be played on Friday afternoon from 14:00 in a traditional knock out system with the top 32 players qualified from the Swiss-System on Thursday. You can find more information regarding the knock out stage for 1vs1 under “Competition info 1vs1”.


  • The winner of the “Little World Championship” on Friday will win a spot to the Saturday group stage and still get the chance to win the World Championship title.
  • From now we have a time limit in the Saturday group stage matches, which is 75 minutes. The teams are responsible to follow the time limit. If the time limit expires you have to start a Tie Break. You can find more information regarding the Tie Break and how to play it under “Competition info 6vs6”.
