A search for hosts of judo qualifiers for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games has been launched by the International Blind Sports Federation (IBSA).
IBSA President Jannie Hammershoi called for countries to come forward to stage Continental Championships, which double as qualification events, in the lead-up to the Paralympics in the Japanese capital.
Asia and Oceania, Pan-American, African and European Championships, all of which are scheduled to be held next year, are available for nations to bid for.
The qualification period for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics begins on September 1.
IBSA Judo are also seeking hosts for two Grand Prix competitions in December 2018 and March 2020.
The first event on offer is the Grand Prix in December, which will be staged a month after the 2018 World Championships in Lisbon.
Organisers interested in hosting have until June 15 to file their application with IBSA Judo.
"We are looking forward with great anticipation to the road to Tokyo 2020," said Hammershoi.
"All of the events will be hugely significant, with athletes able to gain qualification points for the most important competition on the calendar.
"We can expect some incredible performances from Judoka as they work towards their ultimate goal, and seek coveted regional medals and Grand Prix podiums.”
Uzbekistan finished top of the judo medal table at the 2016 Paralympics in Rio de Janeiro with a haul of 10, three of which were gold.
