Yesterday evening, the German government decided to extend the ban on large gatherings and events until August 31st 2020, in their bid to halt the spread of the coronavirus. This effectively puts an end to hosting the Düsseldorf 2020 EuroGames at the dates initially previewed – August 5th – 9th.
EGLSF has been in close communication with Düsseldorf EuroGames organisers since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis and working to find a solution to maintaining EuroGames in Düsseldorf.
At the moment, the EuroGames 2020 Düsseldorf are not cancelled!
We ask participants for their patience, while we work through alternatives with the EGLSF, the Düsseldorf EuroGames organizers, stakeholders, sponsors, the city of Düsseldorf, the North ERhine-Westphalia federal state government, as well as future EuroGames hosts Copenhagen and Nijmegen, in assessing other date options for the event. Until a decision is made, there will be no effect on potential refunds, which means the terms and conditions as listed on the website still apply!
We will come back to you shortly, once we have determined the options. We understand that this still leaves participants with some uncertainty. But we are trying to bring certainty back step by step, by working together to find the best possible solution.
