The 2022 ICU World Cheerleading Championships


Congratulations to all the participants in the 2022 World Cheerleading Championship. Held April 20th – 22nd in Orlando, Florida, this competition marked the end of the competitive season for many of the best teams in the country. The competition was fierce, and the most elite skills in the world were on display.


After the 2021 all virtual format, there was a palpable excitement for teams to get the opportunity to compete live and in person. More than 120 event producers from across the United States and 40 nations worldwide were represented, allowing almost 10,000 athletes to compete in the senior and international cheer divisions.


The World Cheerleading Championships are produced by the International Cheer Union. Established in 2004, the ICU operates as the de facto governing body for cheerleading in the U.S. and across the globe. Nearly 8 million athletes in almost 120 nations participate in ICU events, culminating in the world championships. This year’s championship was held at the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex in Orlando and was broadcast worldwide as the most elite athletes displayed their tumbling, stunting, jumps, and dance to earn their medals.
