Covid-19 Virus Hits FIPS-Mer Events
Because of the current situation regarding the Covid-19 or Corona virus the World Governing body FIPS-Mer have taken the decision to postpone some of their upcoming events.
The competitions affected at present the World Shore Angling Championship for Pairs in Troia in Portugal (scheduled from March 21 to 28, 2020), the World Boat Angling Championship for Seniors in Blankenberge in Belgium (planned from 9 May 16, 2020) and the World Boat Angling Championship for Clubs in Puerto de Salines in Spain (scheduled from July 11 to 18, 2020).
Other events, which are scheduled to take place after the 1st September are not affected to date but this may change in future.
There will be a lot of disappointed anglers whose preparation for these events will already be well advanced and it is hoped that the competitions will take place once the situation has calmed down.
