Dear WCA Community,

As most of you know Red Bull has created their own series of speedcubing competitions in 2018 without the involvement of the WCA.

Their series has finished for this year with their finals in Boston, but they will surely continue for future seasons too. Regarding the 2019 season, we are in talks with them about a possible cooperation between the two parties. So far nothing has been decided, the negotiations have not yet started, but we wanted to inform you that we are in communication with Red Bull right now.
