The International Baseball Challenge (IBC) is an international baseball tournament held in the Chicagoland area with its inaugural season kicking off in July 2018. The IBC will host 3 national teams of WBSC’s member federations (Serbia, Croatia & Slovakia) as well as a North American representative team to play in a 3 day, 4 team round-robin format tournament followed by 2 day seeded semi-final and final game. The IBC tournament will be played at Oil City Stadium in Whiting, Indiana. The name Oil City Stadium celebrates Whiting's history as a refinery town tucked away in the northwest corner of the state for over 120 years. Located 14 miles from downtown Chicago, Oil City Stadium at Standard Diamonds Park combines a unique history, with a progressive way of thinking, to create one of the premier baseball stadiums in the Midwest.
