ITHF statements:

25.3.2020: EURO 2020 IS CANCELLED!
SLOVENIA WILL ORGANIZE EURO 2022.
(Wednesday, the 25th of March 2020).

Due to the present highly unusual situation in Europe with COVID-19 and many restrictions from the national authorities because of this, the Table Hockey Federation of Slovenia has – together with the Executive Committee of ITHF – decided to cancel the European Championships 2020, which were to be organized medio June.

As published before, the Executive Committee of ITHF has decided to award Slovenia with the European Championships 2022 – without voting.

BJARNE AXELSEN, PRESIDENT, ITHF:
“In the Executive Committee of ITHF we are absolutely aware of, that it has been extremely difficult – after months of preparations – to cancel this event for the organizers in Slovenia.
The Covid-19 situation (and consequences of this) is extreme with many travel restrictions from the national authorities.
Two months before the tournament, Europe is the epicenter of Covid-19, many national qualification tournaments have been cancelled, the World Tour is minimized and many of us are not allowed to travel, go to work and visit our families.
Therefore, a cancellation was the most reasonable solution.
In ITHF, we welcome very much, that we could reach this solution in a common way after weeks of daily communication between Slovenia and ITHF.

ITHF and the Euro 2020 Organizing Committee have considered and debated all possible solutions and finally made this decision.
We are sorry for any inconvenience this will bring the table hockey players.
Therefore, it was important for us already some weeks ago to mention this possibility.”

THE EURO 2020 ORGANIZING COMMITTEE:
“To cancel Euro 2020 is the best solution for all now, since ensuring the health of all participants is the most important.
We want to organize a great tournament with all the best players present.
We will accept ITHF proposition to host ECh in June 2022!
If you will be in Slovenia this June, we will organise some 4th category (may be also one 3rd category) tournaments during this weekend (13th and 14th June) IF THE SITUATION due to Covid-19 virus will BE UNDER CONTROL in Slovenia.”

QUESTIONS:
These should be addressed to president@ithf.info or through Messenger to Bjarne Axelsen – and they will be answered.

The best regards
Bjarne Axelsen
President
The Executive Committee of ITHF

16.3.2020: Concerning the European Championships 2020 in Slovenia, the Executive Committee of ITHF has decided to make a final decision about this the 16th of April 2020, that is two months before the tournament.

ITHF president Bjarne Axelsen: We are in close contact with the organizers and if the European Championships 2020 will be cancelled, which is more and more likely to happen, then ITHF will offer the European Championships 2022 to Slovenia, if they are interested.
The Federation of Slovenia is already familiar with this offer.
If the Federation of Slovenia is accepting this offer, they will be awarded with these championships – without voting.
