Dear EFCS members,
The COVID-19 affects us all, some of you harder and we hope that this difficult situation will be brought under control. The organisation of the European Company Sports Games were also impacted. Because of the health risk and the position of the Dutch government, the European Federation for Company Sport, in agreement with the local organising committee for the European Games in Arnhem and all its partners, already informed you, in the last months, of the postponement of the Games’ promotion operations and the postponement of the opening of the registration campaign.
Given the risks that continue to weigh, the postponement of the World Company Sport Games in Athens to June 2021 and especially the instructions and government directives of the Netherlands, the European Company Sport Games will, as you might expect, be postponed to June 2022, from the 22nd to the 26th.
By taking this decision now, we want to provide timely clarity and transparency to all the national federations, companies, participants and all those involved in the organisation of the Arnhem Games to help them face this situation and lay out plans for a massive participation in 2022.
The local organising committee, in consultation with the EFCS, will continue to work tirelessly to identify all the consequences of this decision, so that we all can enjoy an unforgettable edition in 2022. Soon, we will set a new date for the very important coordinators meeting, traditionally planned one year before the Games.
Of course, we will also keep you updated about all other developments.
For any further questions, do not hesitate to contact Marcel van de Goor (Team TOC – email@example.com) or Ron van Gent (Stichting NlOM! – Gent@vnoncw-mkb.nl).
As all of you, we look forward to a return to a normal situation and hope to welcome you all in the Netherlands for a successful 2022 edition.
For now: stay safe and healthy!
The local organising committee of the European Company Sport Games & the EFCS Executive committee
