No World Pyro Olympics for 2016
Update 2: Looks like the schedule for the WPO in Manila, Philippines ahve been changed again. February 16 – China (CN) vs Germany (DE) February 23 – Japan (JP) vs Australia (AU), March 1 – Korea (KR) vd Dubai (AE), March 8 – Italy (IT) vs Venezuela (VE), March 15 – Frace (FR) vs Philippines (PH). People have been asking — when is the next World Pyro Olympics (WPO)? Will it be this December 2016 or maybe January of 2017 No World Pyro Olympics for 2016.
Unfortunately, there will be none this year or next year. La Mancha Productions, the organizing body behind the WPO did not announce anything or any reason why this year’s event will not push thru. There were updates going around though that it was because of the lack of funds and sponsors. Will post an update once this has been finally cleared. Update 1: There might still be hope. In an interview over at PhilStar.com, it was noted that “The 2008 World Pyro Olympics will be held at the Manila Bay on Feb. 16 (China and Germany), 23 (Japan and Australia), Mar. 1 (Korea and Dubai), 8 (Italy and Venezuela), and 15 (France and the Philippines).”.
