IMPORTANT: FICEP-FISEC GAMES 2020, Duisburg cancelled due to Corona virus - Covid-19

Last night a final message was conveyed to FICEP, informing the Bureau that the German authorities and the organizers have had to decide to cancel the FICEP-FISEC Games 2020 in Duisburg.

After a succesful and very promising preliminary visit to Duisburg, which made us very enthusiastic about the upcoming games, the news about the Corona virus-Covid-19 started to cast a shadow on the organization when the number of people affected by the virus increased in various European regions, including the region where the Games are being organized.

These last few weeks we have been in touch frequently with Manfred Castor and the German organizers (DJK), who have kept us informed about the development of the Coronavirus - Covid-19 situation.

Last night a final message was conveyed to FICEP, informing the Bureau that the German authorities and the organizers have had to decide to cancel the FICEP-FISEC Games 2020 in Duisburg.

Below the official message that FICEP-FISEC have composed, explaining the decision making process, based on the policy of the German Health and other authorities. 

OFFICIAL COMMUNICATION ON THE CANCELLATON OF THE FICEP-FISEC Games 2020, Duisburg Germany

 

Dear friends of FISEC,

The discussion and situation of the Corona virus - Covid-19, which is constantly evolving, has certainly not escaped everyone's attention.

FICEP, FISEC and the organizer, the DJK Sports Association, initially planned to develop a step-by-step plan to ensure that the games could take place safely.

However, in the last few days, implementing regulations have been issued by the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), the WHO (World Health Organisation), the respective ministers of the Federal Republic, the state of North Rhine-Westphalia and the city of Duisburg and the responsible sports associations, which demand from all event organizers and hosting organisations, to cancel their activities. 

Following this announcement, FICEP and DJK had a one-hour conference call late yesterday evening with the German authorities, to hear what exactly these implementing measures would mean for the FICEP-FISEC Games in July. The outcome was clear: also for the upcoming FICEP-FISEC Games, the organizers and hosting organisations are instructed to cancel all arrangements and activities which have been prepared for the Games.

Underlying reasons: North Rhine-Westphalia is the most critical area in the Federal Republic. In the period June-August, the peak of the epidemic is expected with 60-70% infected adolescents and young people, who in turn endanger the older generation either on site or after returning home in their own country. It is expected that permission to hold events of this size, will generally be refused from government side, at least until further notice.

Moreover, a later cancellation would increase the risk of serious economic difficulties for both the associations as well as for the participating countries.

This forced cancellation is particularly disappointing because after an intensive preparatory meeting before the pandemic, everything pointed to wonderful and big games. However, the health of all athletes, coaches, supervisors, helpers and organizers as well as spectators is absolutely of the greatest importance.

We trust you understand that this decision had to be taken.
