At the IOF General Assembly 2012 the decision was made to adopt a new model for WOC which would take effect from 2017. Events prior to this have the opportunity to modify their event programme, WOC 2015 in Scotland will use the new programme. The dates for the championship are 31 July - 7 August 2015. The event will be run in parallel with the Scottish 6 Days Event which takes place from 1-8 August 2015.
