United World Wrestling has notified USA Wrestling with an approved revised schedule for the 2018 Freestyle World Cup, hosted by the University of Iowa at Carver-Hawkeye Arena on April 7-8.

 

With Iran and Russia not in the field, and with Mongolia and India added to the event, there are changes in both the pool competition and the order of the bouts.

 

The two-day tournament is broken down into three pool-play sessions, in addition to a medal round. Every team will compete during each session.

 

The new schedule has the United States in Pool A against the nations of Japan, Georgia, and India. Pool B consists of teams from Azerbaijan, Cuba, Kazakhstan and Mongolia.

 

The times of the U.S. duals have not changed from the previous schedule, but the order of the opponents has changed. The USA will face India first, followed by Japan on Saturday, then will battle on Sunday morning against Georgia to complete its pool competition.

 

The revised event schedule is as follows:
