2020 IFSC Plenary Assembly Postponed
In the current scenario of uncertainty caused by the outbreak of the COVID-19 coronavirus – which has already impacted countless sport events all around the world, including the 2020 IFSC World Cup Series – the International Federation of Sport Climbing decided that the 2020 IFSC Plenary Assembly, scheduled to take place in Limassol (CYP) on March 13 and 14, 2020, has been now tentatively postponed to the week of November 9-15, 2020, to be confirmed at the Executive Board teleconference meeting taking place on March 6.
This difficult decision comes after the IFSC HQ was notified with a number of withdrawals that have reduced the number of participants by more than 30% so far, and as an inevitable consequence of the traveling restrictions that many countries have already applied.
IFSC President Mr. Marco Scolaris said:
“The health and safety of our Member Federations’ representatives is our main concern at the moment, and by taking this action we prevent any risk of quarantine that could’ve been applied to them if the Plenary Assembly had taken place. Thanks to the tireless work of our office, we can guarantee that the loss contingencies caused by the postponement of the PA are under control. I would like to take the opportunity to publicly thank the Cyprus Mountaineering, Climbing and Orienteering Federation and its President, Mr. Pavlos GEORGIADES, for being extremely cooperative all along this complicated process.”
