Softball Europe Board decided to cancel the 2021 Coed Slowpitch European Championship.
In a letter to the organisers and the participating teams, Softball Europe President Gabriel Waage announced that the 2021 Coed Slowpitch European Championship had to be canceled since participants are withdrawing due to time pressure and COVID-19 restrictions still in place.
"As we are coming closer and closer to day 1 of the Coed Slowpitch European Championship, we still have no indication that the Italian Government will cancel all quarantines of national teams arriving in Italy for the Tournament," Gabriel Waage wrote to the participating teams, "although we can see an optimistic scenario on the borders opening up around Europe, we have no written confirmation and teams are pulling out due to time pressure.".
Taken all the information and the current health situation, Softball Europe sadly decided to cancel the 2021 Coed Slowpitch European Championship scheduled for June 16 to 19, 2021, in Colorno, Italy, and previously confirmed.
The Italian Baseball and Softball Federation (FIBS) have been informed and are in agreement with this tough decision.
