The ISTAF World Cup is a competition organised by the International Sepaktakraw Federation (ISTAF) to modernise the traditional sport of Sepaktakraw. Alongside the ISTAF SuperSeries, the ISTAF World Cup is a platform to showcase the best of the sport and seeks to broaden the appeal of the sport to the international community.[1]

The first ever ISTAF World Cup debuted in Titiwangsa Stadium, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia during July 2011 and saw the participation of 36 international teams and a total of 180 athletes.[2]

The winner for the 1st ISTAF World Cup (Men) was Thailand and the runner-up was Malaysia. The winner for the 1st ISTAF World Cup (Women) was Thailand and the runner-up was Vietnam.[3][4]
