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 – firstname.lastname@example.org) 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!
The local organizing committee of the European Company Sport Games & The EFCS Executive committee
