Argentina has been re-allocated next year's World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) Under-23 Men's Softball World Cup.

A new bidding process was opened by the WBSC Executive Board when the event faced another postponement from October 2022, having originally been scheduled for 2021.

The South American country is set to remain as host for the inaugural edition of the Under-23 Men's Softball World Cup, following a decision by the Executive Board.

Matches are set to be played at the Nafaldo Cargnel Stadium in Paraná.

The line-up of 12 teams has been completed, with Canada, ranked third in the world, awarded a wildcard place.

They join the top-ranked host nation, Mexico, Venezuela and Guatemala as representatives of the Americas.

Japan and Singapore are set to compete from Asia, Czech Republic and Israel from Europe, Australia and New Zealand from Oceania and South Africa from Africa.

The WBSC had already confirmed an extension of the age limit for the Under-23 World Cup, allowing players who would have been eligible to play in October to take part at the rearranged tournament in 2023.

The Under-23 Men's Softball World Cup is scheduled for April 15 to 23.

Under-23 is the WBSC's latest age category addition to its Men's Softball World Cup offerings, joining the senior and under-18 competitions and an under-12 mixed gender event.

An Under-15 Women’s Softball World Cup is due to debut in Tokyo in October next year.
