With the draws having been made for the 2015 IFCPF World Championships earlier today in St Georges Park, England, Australia has been put into Group B alongside Brazil, Scotland and Venezuela. The championships are scheduled to get underway on June 13 and run until June 28 in Burton-upon-Trent, England. For the draw, Australia was put in Pot 3 with the United States, Canada and hosts England.
With the most recent world rankings published by the CPISRA in November 2014, Australia was ranked twelfth while Russia was ranked first, Ireland was ranked seventh and Portugal was ranked thirteenth.
Russia will go to England as reigning Paralympic gold medalists. In contrast, Australia will go to England after massive cuts to their budget after the Australian Sports Commission determined that they were unlikely to be medal contenders in Rio.
