The fifth world championship of American football will played in a new format in the sport’s mother country this summer, according to the International Federation of American Football website.

Canton, Ohio, will be the host of the international competition, which takes place once every four years. Originally, Stockholm was named the host of this year’s championship, but was forced to give up the plan in December because of financial problems. The IFAF chose Canton, where the Pro Football Hall of Fame is located, as the replacement city and rescheduled it to run from July 8-19.
