COVID-19 EVENT CANCELED
Following the guidance of 23 february 2020 given by the President of Friuli Venezia Giulia Region about the Covid-19, we would like to inform you that both the LOC and the FINP (Italian Para Swimming Federation) have been asked to cancel the event called “WPS World Series – Italian Winter Championships”, which should have taken place at Lignano Sabbiadoro from February 27th to March 1st. Sadly this also includes all classifications taking place from 24th to 26th February.
Therefore, we ask all the people who are involved in this event (suppliers, athletes, teams, audience) to wait for further official communication from the LOC regarding accommodation and entry fees.
We are talking about 900 people coming not only from Italy, but also from 41 foreign countries, for a total of 95 teams, audience, suppliers, travel agents and many other people.
Please bear with us while we agree on the next steps which are being discussed with the Local and Italian Federation. For the time being, we have to concentrate on the guidelines coming from the local authorities, even if we are aware of the fact that there will be economical difficulties.
We would like to thank the volunteers, the transportation service, Bella Italia Village and all the people who have been working with us in order to face this extraordinary situation.
