By then, the IPC (International Parachuting Commission) had not decided which skydiving center would host the World Championship of Formation Skydiving 2014. The NSL News followed up when this decision was made and reported on 15 February 2013 that Prostejov won the bidding process.
Prostejov's owner Martin Dlouhy has hosted two world cups (2009, 2012) and has now been rewarded for the ongoing efforts with his first world meet. He also joined one of the A Class lineups, Bubbles, who competed at the first of the two Czech meets on May 18th.

This was bad luck for the meet in Pribram, and it was promising at the same time for the national teams from all over the world who will travel to Prostejov next year. The skydiving center in the eastern part of the Czech Republic has not given away a round to bad weather yet, at least not in the NSL records.
One of the teams came from Prostejov and is now the only Czech team with two outdoor meets this year. Zoonte (Katerina Hodinkova, Veronika Hrstkova, Radek Kopal, Jan Vajc, with Zdenek Alexa on camera) competed in the A Class on May 18th and took the 1st place on the overall leaderboard with a total of seven teams from the Czech Republic and Florida.

Hvezdy could have been good competition for Zoonte in the AA Class. However, last year's AA Class champion, who also represented the Czech Republic at the ESL Championship 2012 and finished with bronze medals in Belgium, had decided to step up into the AAA Class after attending a total of eight meets, indoor and outdoor, in the AA Class last year.
Hvezdy has also attended all four indoor meets this year in the AA Class and began the new AAA Class adventure with the first outdoor competition this year. Zoonte now has to wait for the missing AA Class scores from the Midwest and the Northern Plains. The 11.0 average for the first two rounds is a challenge for the other AA Class teams.
