European Company Sport Games 2021 postponed to 2022

Dear EFCS members,

The COVID-19 affects us all, some of you harder and we hope the current tension situation will be brought under control. The organization of the European Company Sports Games were also affected. Because of the health risk and the position of the Dutch government, the European Federation for Company Sport, in agreement with the local organizing committee for the European Games in Arnhem and all its partners, first informed you last months ago of the postponement of the Games promotion operations and the postponement of 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 from 22nd to 26th June 2022.
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 organization of the Arnhem Games to organize themselves and plan a participation massive for 2022.

The local organising committee, in consultation with the EFCS, will continue working tirelessly to identify all the consequences of this decision, so that we all can enjoy an unforgettable edition in 2022. We will also set really soon a new date for the very important coordinators meeting, traditionally planned one year before the Games.
Of course, we will also keep you informed about all other developments.

For any further questions, do not hesitate to contact Marcel van de Goor (Team TOC – marcel@teamtoc.nl) or Ron van Gent (Stichting NlOM! – Gent@vnoncw-mkb.nl).

As all of you, we look forward to a return to normal situation and hope to welcome you all in the Netherlands for a successful 2022 edition.

For now: save yourself, stay safe and healthy!
Best regards,

The local organizing committee of the European Company Sport Games & The EFCS Executive committee

HEMA project launches European wide questionnaire

The European Federation for Company Sport is strongly engaged in the development of company sport and grassroots sports at EU levels through the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.

In the framework of the HEMA project, Healthy Employee Mobile and Active, we are looking for your help and engagement.

HEMA in a nutshell

“Healthy Employee, Mobile and Active” (HEMA) is a 3-year program intended to tackle the high level of physical inactivity in Europe. HEMA is supported and co-funded by the European Commission in the field of Erasmus+ program and European Week of Sport. The project aims at leveraging physical activity rates by combining sport, physical activity and mobility. The concept of HEMA is to associate moments of practicing sport to specific discussions and studies around ways of implementation of physical activity and mobility in European workplaces.

One major aspect of HEMA legacy will concern the development and transfer of specific and adapted programs to EU workplaces to help them implementing concrete sport and mobility activities at work.

HEMA contribution

The project is carrying out a European state-of-art report on the current programmes available for promoting physical activity and active mobility at work in Europe, a survey targeted to employers and employees to identify major levers and brakes in providing and participating in such programmes, and a framework for pilot testing of such programmes over three months in Belgium, France and Latvia in 2021.

The survey is currently open and can be accessed in different languages.

Antonio Mauri has died at the age of 81

EFCS Honorary member Antonio Mauri has died at the age of 81

April 4th was a very sad day for the Mauro family, CSAIn (Centri Sportivi Aziendali e Industriali) and EFCS. Pater familias Antonio Mauri, former president and honorary president of CSAIn, died of the consequences of the deadly corona virus in Catania, Sicily, Italy.

Antonio, born in Cavenago, Brianza on February 8th 1939, was a very respected man who led CSAIn from 2001 till 2008 with passion and vigor. He was also a much appreciated member of the EFCS Executive Committee from 2004 till 2010.

Antonio will be remembered as a very charming, gentle, sensible and intelligent man who was always available.

EFCS presents its deepest condolences to his wife Gabriela, his family and friends in this dark time.

EFCS launches WAC: Workplace Active Certification

Official kick-off meeting of the WAC project

The European Federation for Company Sport has launched its latest European project, Erasmus+, in Paris on the 4th of February 2020. This project will gather 10 partners from over Europe to offer concrete solutions to the creation of a European-wide certification on health, wellness, physical activity in the workplace.

Partners were invited at INSEP, high level performance training centre for French Athletes. After a guided tour of the facilities, partners participated in their first meeting.

The WAC project, for Workplace Active Certification, is a two-year project which follows the path of a previous Erasmus+ Project, EMoCS – European Meeting of Company Sport. The EMoCS project showed the need for a unique certification for companies to promote their initiatives towards wellbeing, wellness, health with regards to physical activity.

The WAC project kick-offs where EMoCS left off. WAC will today work on the creation of the certification. A first draft and test version will be launched during the 2020 European Week of Sport. After the evaluation process, the certification will officially be launched during the 2021 European Week of Sport. The first applicants will be evaluated in 2022 for an official certification award during the 2022 European Week of Sport.

Role of EFCS

As project leader, the EFCS, will overview the whole project and the specific tasks alocated to partners such as:

  • Research, diagnose, analyse good practices and the fields of the project to come up with an up-to-date state of the art report;
  • Define the different steps and organisation of the certification process, establish official national contact points all over Europe and to coordinate the general strategy of the process;
  • Define the certification criteria, build a method to select applications and to propose the final version of the certification with regards to the pilot phase;
  • Elaborate self-evaluation tools and processes for applicants, build a training programme and content for auditors and define quality controls;
  • Establish a programme and matrix for the pilot tests, identify the companies and evaluate the pilot test;
  • Support the intellectual outputs and certification overall by implementing strategic event actions;
  • Support the certification and its legacy and sustainability towards companies all over Europe.
