Very much to the regret of all involved in the preparations of the FICEP-FISEC Games 2020, we have had to decide, in close co-operation with our friends of FICEP and DJK, to cancel the upcoming Games, due to the Covid-19 outbreak in many countries worldwide, including Germany.
Although the Games would not take place until mid July, it was considered too much of a health and economic risk to continue with the preparations in a time of great uncertainty.
On behalf of the FISEC Bureau, I would like to thank all those within the COJFI (Organising Committee) for the FICEP-FISEC Games 2020, in particular DJK for their efforts and their professionalism in dealing with this unexpected crisis.
We know that all participating countries appreciate this decision and we sincerely hope that, at a later stage, we will be able to make arrangements for future games.
To DJK, who were hosting these FICEP-FISEC Games during their 100th anniversary year, we wish them an opportunity later this year, to celebrate together this important event.
I wish you and your loved ones good health and wisdom to deal with this crisis.
Until we meet again,
Lies Janssen, President FISEC
