The World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) invites member federations to express their interest in hosting a WBSC World Cup. WBSC Baseball World Cups showcase the best players and teams from throughout the world at various categories.
These are: WBSC U-12 Baseball World Cup, WBSC U-15 Baseball World Cup, WBSC U-18 Baseball World Cup, WBSC U-23 Baseball World Cup, WBSC Women’s Baseball World Cup.
Organising these WBSC events gives the opportunity to the national federation to develop the game locally, while also providing world-wide exposure for their program and the hosting region.
The World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) is committed that baseball not only grows worldwide through the organisation of various WBSC World Cups, but also ensures that national federations benefit of hosting a WBSC Baseball World Cup before, during and after an event. Other benefits are:

Additionally WBSC streamlined the process for federation to bid for the organization of a WBSC World Cup. Event Hosting Manuals were created to provide a guideline for interested hosts.
The World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) has produced a number of manuals that aim to guide the local commitees through the organization of an international baseball event. The manuals were produced by the WBSC Tournaments Department to help set a standard for the organisation of events, in order to ensure the success delivery and sustainable legacy of the WBSC Baseball World Cups.
