IGFA Announces Plans for 2021 Auction & Tournament Week

Combining both events for a week-long celebration in South Florida

The International Game Fish Association (IGFA) announced today its plan to host both the IGFA Light Tackle Open and the IGFA International Auction in South Florida during the week of February 8-13, 2021.

The decision to combine these two premier events into a week-long celebration, which will take place around the Miami International Boat Show, was approved by the IGFA Board of Trustees earlier this week.

“We are extremely excited about our new plan,” said IGFA President Jason Schratwieser. “It just makes sense to merge these two premier events into a week-long celebration that culminates with our annual auction, which is our biggest fundraiser of the year that helps to bring the IGFA’s mission to life around the world.”

Please see below for additional details on both events.

IGFA Light Tackle Open

The IGFA Light Tackle Open is scheduled to be a two-day tournament and will take place out of Sailfish Marina Resort in Palm Beach Shores, Florida, from Tuesday, February 9, 2021 to Thursday, February 11, 2021.

The date of the 37th Annual IGFA International Auction & Banquet is scheduled for Saturday, February 13, 2021. Several venues are currently being considered and will be announced in the next several weeks.
