Important - 2021 Events

Dear ISBHF Ball Hockey Family,

The ISBHF hopes that everyone remains safe and healthy, and we appreciate your support for the sport of ball hockey and the 2021 ISBHF events.

In recent communications with the National Federations and Local Organizing Committees regarding the 2021 ISBHF events and the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the ISBHF Board of Directors would like to make the following announcements:

2021 World Men’s & Women’s Masters Championships

The 2021 World Men’s & Women’s Masters Championships will not take place June 16-20, 2021 in České Budějovice, Czech Republic.

The ISBHF is considering the option to have the event take place September 8-12, 2021 should the global health situation allow, and the location in the Czech Republic will be confirmed soon.

2021 World Under-20 & Under-18 Junior Championships

The 2021 World Under-20 and Under-18 Junior Championships will not take place June 22-27, 2021 in Visp & Raron, Switzerland.

As Switzerland is unfortunately unable to host later than at the end of June, the ISBHF will consider the option to have the event take place in late July/early August, 2021 at an alternative location should the global health situation allow. A final decision will be made within the next 30 days.

The ISBHF will stay in contact with the cities of Visp & Raron, to see if a future ISBHF event can be hosted there.

2021 World Under-20 Girls & Under-16 Boys Junior Championships

The 2021 World Under-20 Girls and Under-16 Boys Junior Championships will not take place July 1-4, 2021.

The ISBHF will consider the option to have the event take place in late July/early August, 2021 in Žilina or at an alternative location in Slovakia, should the global health situation allow. A final decision will be made within the next 30 days.

 

The safety and health of all the participants, staff, families, and friends are the highest priority.

On behalf of the ISBHF, we would like to thank everyone for their patience and support as we continue to navigate the ball hockey family through this period of uncertainty.

Best regards,

George Gortsos
President
International Street & Ball Hockey Federation
