AN INVITATION FOR CLUBS AND FEDERATIONS: Enter the new ESF Euroleague!
Euroleague is a fastpitch softball competition played at a cross-border
regional level. The aim is to build a
workable framework for international club competition in Europe.
The Euroleague is for teams…
· … who have a desire to play and grow.
· … who are looking to increase the number of games for their players.
· … who want to add international games to their competition programme at minimal cost.
In 2016, the Euroleague is being played as a women’s fastpitch competition by eight teams from the Central European countries of Austria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia.
However, the organizers of the Euroleague, along with the European Softball Federation, are inviting clubs and Federations from other parts of Europe to create a Euroleague structure in their region. We want to replicate the Euroleague concept in different parts of Europe for both women’s and men’s fastpitch club teams. If we can do this, the Euroleague could play a key role in the development of softball across Europe.
Below is a document with more details about the history of Euroleague (aslo know as Interleague in the past) so far and the goals and benefits of the concept. For more information, to sign up, or to discuss the process of establishing a Euroleague competition in your region, contact Petra Cizmic at email@example.com.
