The event will see freerunners from 17 countries gather at Trafalgar Square on Saturday 15 August to tackle a specially designed course that will enable them to showcase their creativity.

It is expected to attract up to 7,000 fans, with the live final, produced by BAFTA-winning North One Television, being broadcast on BBC Three at 7pm.

"The world championships are going from strength to strength and this live broadcast of the final demonstrates the growing importance and popularity of this sport, and enables Barclaycard to take it to a far wider audience internationally," said Barclaycard head of sponsorship Dan Mathieson.
