In the light of recent events, the Executive Committee of the International University Sports Federation (FISU) has decided to cancel the FISU Floorball campionship 2020, due to the unprecedented situation caused by the COVID-19 global pandemic.
“Cancelling these events has not been an easy decision, but we truly believe it is the wisest choice in these circumstances,” wrote FISU Secretary General-CEO Eric Saintrond in a letter to all member federations. “FISU will reimburse the team deposits to the respective National University Sports Federations. We deeply regret that the COVID-19 pandemic has left us with no other choice. We have been closely monitoring the situation and have tried to react in the best possible way,” Saintrond continued. “During this challenging period, it is our duty to make cautious decisions in order to ensure the safety of all those involved in FISU events.”
The University Sports Association of Primorska was really looking forward to host FISU World University Floorball Championship in Koper. However, we fully endorse the decision made, as the safety and well-being of all involved is a priority in the current situation.
We wish you all the best!
