A reliable source for goalball schedules, scores, and standings.

**Section:** PART B – TOURNAMENT REGULATIONS

Each place available for the Ratio Formula will be filled by a team from the IBSA Goalball Region with the highest score using the following principle: The total number of competing countries in the previous two years’ IBSA Regional Championships divided by the number of competing countries from that region already qualified for the World Goalball Championships. This formula will be recalculated for every spot available under the Ratio Formula. A region will only be able to obtain a maximum of half the available places from the ratio formula. Once a region has obtained half the places or more, that region will be removed from any further calculations. If there are four places allocated to the Ratio Formula, any region may only be allocated a maximum of two places under the formula. If there are five places allocated to the Ratio Formula, any region may only be allocated a maximum of three places under the formula. If the ratio formula calculation is the same for two or more regions, the slot will be given to the highest ranked team of the tied regions on the IBSA World Ranking.
