The International Blind Sports Federation (IBSA) is seeking a host for its 2017 Judo World Championships.
IBSA are the governing body for the partially sighted version of the martial art, which is a full Paralympic sport.
The World Championships will take place between September and October next year with a call made for countries interested in hosting.
In addition, IBSA also need to name hosts for Continental Championships in Asia/Oceania, Europe, Pan America and Africa.
All of the events will begin the Paralympic cycle for judo leading up to the 2020 Games in Japanese capital Tokyo.
A deadline of October 31 has been set for any country intending to bid.
The call comes after IBSA Judo Committee chairman Nobert Biro met with International Judo Federation (IJF) President Marius Vizer, with both organisations aiming to strengthen ties between the able-bodied and Paralympic versions of the sport following the success of Rio 2016.
The pair met at the IJF Presidential office to reflect on both the Olympic and Paralympic Games, with the next steps for developing visually impaired judo among the key aspects of their conversation.
Vizer reaffirmed that the IJF will continue to support IBSA, with both organisations signing a Memorandum of Understanding at the Budapest Grand Prix in 2014 to develop the "professionalism and integration" of visually impaired judo.
The backing will include providing technical support and assistance with judo projects in the build-up to Tokyo 2020.
The IJF have claimed the strategy is for a long-term collaboration between the organisations, stating they will assist with the qualification system for the Paralympics, starting next year.
