European Qualification Tournament for WC21
To all federations,
Due to the ongoing issues with regard to the COVID-19 pandemic, there has not been any possibility to organize the European Championship 2020. Since the FMJD has announced that the World Championship Draughts has been rescheduled to the end of June 2021, the EDC has decided to schedule an European Qualification Tournament (EQT) in the first half of May.
Hence we are calling all interested federations and organizers to announce their candidacy to host this EQT. Candidate proposals should include basic information on preliminary dates, location and lodging costs for the participants.
Hotel: full board package available
Rooms: both double and single rooms available
Spacious playing room, preferable within the hotel
Easily accessible location through the airport, if needed via train or shuttle
Country borders should be open for all European countries
EDC requirements regarding COVID-19 fully met
The organizer gets a contribution of 20% of the total subscription fees in order to cover the full travel costs and lodge the main referee, appointed by the EDC, in a single room with full board
No limit to the number of participants per country
Subscription fee: 100 €
Travel expenses at own costs
