Better days will come
In view of the latest information concerning the spread of COVID-19 in Europe and the decisions taken by the various European governments, Paris Athlé 2020 is following the evolution of the situation with the utmost attention.
At this stage, any decision to postpone or cancel the Paris 2020 European Athletics Championships would be premature. Paris Athlé 2020 remains in permanent contact with European Athletics and the French Athletics Federation in order to study all the possible options.
“Perhaps the most pressing question for most federations is the status of this season’s major European event, the Paris 2020 European Athletics Championships from 25-30 August. At this point we can say that preparations are going ahead as planned but we are monitoring developments on a day-to-day basis and must remain vigilant as the situation evolves,” said European Athletics President Svein Arne Hansen in a press release. The European Athletics Executive Board will host its previously scheduled meeting via teleconference on 24-25 March.
In the event of a cancellation of the event, ticket holders would be refunded. Refund arrangements would be specified in due course. Paris Athle 2020 will keep you informed on the official website and social media.
Following the announcements of the President of the French Republic last week, Paris Athlé 2020 has applied the necessary measures for the health of all. And invites everyone to show solidarity and responsibility during this difficult period. While waiting for better days, take care of yourself and your family.
