EHF ANNOUNCES EUROHOCKEY CLUB TROPHY WOMEN ON HOLD

Posted On 12/03/2020

After careful consideration, the European Hockey Federation, the Real Federacion Espanola de Hockey and host club Junior FC have made the difficult decision to put on hold the EuroHockey Club Trophy Women which was due to take place in Sant Cugat del Vallès, Spain from April 10 to 13, 2020.

Given the growing concerns over public health due to the developing coronavirus (COVID-19) global situation, the unanimous consensus is to put the event on hold.

Marijke Fleuren, EHF President, said: “We have considered different options, but we are deeply disappointed that current circumstances beyond our control mean we have no alternative but to put the event on hold.”

“The health and well-being of everyone involved must be our primary concern during this unprecedented time. We are also conscious of our responsibilities to the world around us. Placing the EuroHockey Club Trophy Women on hold we believe, is the wisest decision that we can make in these extraordinary circumstances.”

“Please be patient with us while we discuss the best way forward.”

Junior FC President, Marcos Hofmann, said: “This decision was difficult, but we are sure we are making the right one now. For the moment I want to thank all the teams and officials and the spectators for their support. Moreover many thanks to all volunteers of Junior FC who worked so hard until now to make the event possible. ”

EHF President Fleuren concluded: “I would like to thank Junior FC for their incredible support and collaboration. Finally, I wish the hockey family well as we all face this testing time together.”
