IGFA Announces Plans for 2021 Auction & Tournament Week

DANIA BEACH, FL – 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.

37th Annual IGFA International Auction & Banquet
The 37th Annual IGFA International Auction is scheduled for the evening of Saturday, February 13, 2021, at the IGFA Headquarters in Dania Beach, Florida.
