The World Cup of Wabi, a joint initiative between Wabi USA and Philadelphia United, is finally here.
The tournament, which is set to kick off Saturday in Philadelphia, has been in the works for a few years, and the first official dates were announced by Wabi in February.
“It’s going to be huge for the city of Philadelphia,” said Chris Staggs, co-founder of Wabis World Cup, in an interview with Philadelphia Magazine.
“The Wabi World Cup is a massive event for the region.
It’s going be huge because we have so much history, so much culture and so much energy here.”
The tournament is the first Wabi event outside of Europe, and it will feature some of the best athletes from around the world.
The event will feature a roster of world-class athletes and some of its competitors will represent a range of different sports including boxing, volleyball, cycling, tennis, soccer and hockey.
Wabi USA is also working on other events, including a national championship soccer tournament and a women’s basketball tournament, according to the website.
While the tournament has been a long time coming, Wabi has always had a history of hosting international competitions.
In fact, the Wabizas inaugural tournament was held in Canada.
In 2012, the league hosted its first World Cup in Mexico, a tournament that saw Wabes teams compete in more than 50 countries.
“The Wabibes World Cup will be the biggest tournament in the world and will showcase the sport and the people of Wombats home country,” Wabi’s website says.
“We look forward to bringing this tournament to Philadelphia.”
For the past decade, Wabisi has been looking to bring the Wabo Sports World Series to Philadelphia.
A similar tournament was hosted in Portland, Ore., in 2020.
In the meantime, Wabo has also been developing its own regional league.
The Wabi Sports League is set for a debut this year, with the league debuting on Saturday, Aug. 19.
Wabisi USA will host the inaugural tournament, with three teams from the United States, Canada and Mexico, as well as two teams from Europe.
In addition, the team from Italy will compete.
In 2017, WABI also hosted the World Cup for its members, the world’s largest soccer federation, with four teams from each of the five countries, including one from the U.S.
The Wabbis World Series has become a staple event for fans in the Philly area, which includes the city’s many bars and restaurants, the American Legion Post and the WABITAS Center for Sports.
“You don’t have to be a soccer fan to appreciate the Wabbi World Series, but it’s great for the sport in Philly because it’s something that we really enjoy, and you have the opportunity to see all the different players from different sports,” said Anthony Cisneros, a bar manager who regularly goes to the games.
“This tournament is going to bring a lot of excitement to Philly and to the city and the community.”
