WTF Council approves adoption of mandatory completition license for athletes At the WTF Council meeting held in Tashkent, Uzbekistan on October 6, the WTF approved the adoption of a mandatory competition license for athletes. This license will be a crucial tool in gathering valuable information on WTF`s top competing athletes and lead to a more efficient competition management process.

All licensed athletes will receive a unique WTF ID number and license card which will be used to identify and verify the athlete at all licensed tournaments. Key taekwondo data will be stored and accessible online through the unique WTF ID number for all athletes.

The mandatory license will be required starting from the WTF World Championships to be held in Gyeongju, Korea in May next year and be required for all WTF promoted championships. License registration will begin from January next year and must be completed by each taekwondo member national association.
