The Senior Freestyle and Greco-Roman Wrestling Championship of Azerbaijan will be held on 13-15 December, 2014 at “Sarhadchi” Sports Olympic Center.

The matches will be held according to the rules of United World Wrestling and refereed by judges, appointed by the Board of Judges of Azerbaijan Wrestling Federation. Moreover, it is planned to invite international referees from the United World Wrestling in order to achieve objective and just refereeing. Around 10 international referees have already been invited to the country for just refereeing at the Championship of Azerbaijan. They will especially be asked to referee matches of principle. We would like to remind our readers that this is not the first time Azerbaijan Wrestling Federation invites foreign referees to organize the national championship on a high level.

On 14 December we will find out the strongest among the freestylers in 86, 97 and 125 kg categories and among Greco-Roman wrestlers in 59, 66 and 71 kg weight classes. At last, the Greco-Roman wrestlers will compete in 75, 80, 85, 98 and 130 kg weight classes on the last day of the tournament.

The top three sportsmen in all weight classes will be awarded with corresponding diplomas, medals and money prizes by the AWF, invited to join the national team and provided with a full uniform set.
