“Mark your calendars and prepare to be captivated,” Cigar Smoking World Championship founder Marko Bilic says.
On September 2 the CSWC grand final in Split, Croatia, will be broadcasted live on the CSWC Youtube channel. Starting at 16.15 CET enthusiasts all over the world will be able to follow the plausibly dramatic final slow smoking race of the season. Will Poland dominate like last year or will smokers from the US or maybe Norway rise up to the challenge? Will Borys Szkodzik defend his title or will his girlfriend and current world record holder Klaudia Ide push him off the throne? Will Hauke Walter claim his first win since 2018 or will Drew Emch take that final step and be crowned world champion? Or will the winner be a complete surprise?
Tune in, if that’s the correct terminology nowadays, on September 2 and find out.
“Gone are the days of wondering, of being left in the dark,” Bilic says. “Now, the stage is set for a global spectacle. As the competitors gather to showcase their prowess and determination, you’ll have a front-row seat from the comfort of your own screen. Feel the excitement, light up your cigar, immerse yourself in the camaraderie, and cheer for your favorite contenders as they vie for the ultimate victory in the realm of slow smoking.”
He will personally moderate the event along with CSWC team member Ana Roncevic and CSWC ambassador and judge Pierre Gustavsson.
“It will continue until the final puff is puffed, and the World Champion is named,” he concludes.
