Date:

MEXICO SET TO SIGN FLW INTERNATIONAL SANCTIONING AGREEMENT AT FORREST WOOD CUP
Advisory for Friday, August 14, 2015
WHAT:  FLW, the world’s largest tournament-fishing organization, is set to sign an agreement with Mexico to bring their internationally sanctioned bass-fishing tournaments to the United States’ southern neighbor as part of the international division of the Rayovac FLW Series. The agreement will be signed by Jaime Luengo, President and CEO of LUTCOM SA DE CV, at a scheduled signing during the “FLW Morning Show” on the morning of August 21st at the Forrest Wood Cup.
WHEN:                 Friday, August 21, 2015
WHERE                FLW Morning Show
                              Brady Mountain Resort & Marina
                              Corps of Engineers Launch Facility
              4120 Brady Mountain Road
                              Royal, Ark.
NOTES: Mexico will run a series of FLW tournaments that advance anglers, who are citizens of the host country, to a new international division at the Rayovac FLW Series Championship beginning in 2016. The highest finisher among countries represented in the international division will then advance to the Forrest Wood Cup, making it the sport’s only true world championship.
Mexico is set to become the fourth country to sign on for international sanctioning, joining Canada, South Korea and China as FLW partners under the new program and will begin hosting FLW-sanctioned tournaments in 2016. Details on the internationally-hosted tournaments will be available soon.
Named after the founder of Ranger Boats, Forrest L. Wood, FLW introduced its Fishing League Worldwide tagline last year to better reflect its status as the world’s largest tournament fishing organization. Earlier this year FLW expanded its presence on the world stage yet again with the introduction of a sanctioning program allowing international partners to license the iconic brand and run FLW tournaments abroad.
Additional FLW qualifying tournaments in other countries are forthcoming. Watch FLWFishing.com for details.
