The championships will be postponed to 2022 for three main reasons:
First, the Covid situation in Switzerland remains tense, especially regarding hospital capacities and occupancy of intensive care units.
Second, major events can currently only be held with a special permit, which can be withdrawn at short notice if the situation should deteriorate.
Third, entry into Switzerland is currently restricted for various countries, which might have prevented more than half the countries from participating in the championships.
The good news: The ESKA European Championships 2021 will take place in Switzerland, December 2nd, 2022. Please save the date!
