The United States has long been regarded as a sporting superpower.Almost every challenge, sport, or competition has top individuals or teams.The same thing happened with CSWC.Even though Russia was the first country to dominate the first years of the CSWC, the first time the US entered the game, it was a game changer. Darren Cioffi, a slow smoking superstar from Nashville, was that change for Russian dominance and breaking all barriers.

Yes, I had some crazy smoking times during my CSWC career, but the United States didn't really start with CSWC participation. When that occurs, and the United States is fully engaged in the CSWC, we will face some new slow smoking superstars who will achieve incredible feats in this competition. The United States will be one of the best and most interesting countries in the qualification season -Darren Cioffi , Former World Champion, CSWC superstar
In previous years, despite only hosting 5 events per year, the United States has provided some of the world's best slow smokers, three of whom are on the top 20 list of the World's best slow smokers raking list. The United States accomplished this with only a few dozens of smokers participating in the CSWC each year. Russia, the United States' main rival, has seven positions on the list. We are confident that when the CSWC opens a bigger door in the United States, with more events and more smokers participating, that dominance will fall into the hands of the United States. Undoubtedly, exciting times are ahead of us.

After four years with Macanudo as the official CSWC cigar, the CSWC took a new step in 2019 when it signed a contract with Rocky Patel to be the new producer of competition cigar.The Grand Final 2019 was the perfect occasion to make the announcement. It was a spectacular event, and Rocky Patel and Marko Bilic exchanged handshakes on stage to signal the start of a new partnership. Even though CSWC was already present in the United States through Macanudo, the partnership with Rocky represented a new level for CSWC on American soil.
