Kennel Club Celebrates Honour of Hosting 2028 FCI Agility World Championships

The Kennel Club is delighted and honoured to be accepted by the FCI as hosts of the FCI Agility World Championships in 2028.

The world renowned Championships, which have been taking place since 1996, were this year held in Austria and welcomed pedigree dogs and their handlers from 38 countries across the globe.

50 years on from the introduction of dog agility, the historical 2028 Championships are expected to attract participants from all over the world and make for a memorable event.

Tony Allcock, Chairman of The Kennel Club, commented: “We are extremely proud to have been confirmed by the FCI as the hosts for the Agility World Championships in 2028, during such a historic year for the discipline.

“Holding the Championships in Great Britain will bring nostalgia and celebration in a milestone year for agility, as the 2028 Agility World Championships will mark the 50th anniversary of the first ever Agility Dog Demonstration at the 1978 Crufts. We are honoured to be holding them to mark this very special anniversary.

“I would like to thank Steve Croxford, The Kennel Club FCI representative, who played a significant role in applying for this honour and achieving this successful outcome.”

Further details on the location and timing of the Championships will be released nearer the time.
