Following the COVID-19 situation, the diverse evolution of governments dispositions in the progressive return to normal activities and after evaluating all, we wish to confirm that the 2020 European Championships are postponed to September, with the final date to be announced in coming days.

To adopt this decision we have as a priority the health and safety of our athletes, officials, and supporters, granting as well, in the best of our capacity the right of participation of all our countries in this emblematic event.

Santa Susanna, Spain, well known as the world capital of fitness, will be next September, once again, our traditional second home, in which we look forward to meeting all of you in the best health, to celebrate inspirational moments of sport and friendship.

We are immersed in a health international emergency as a consequence of the Covid-19 epidemic.

In this situation, we must follow the applicable national and international regulations and the advice from governments and sanitary authorities.

All this has to be done with positive energy and best spirit, maintaining our focus on the fact that any epidemical situation has expansion, stabilization and reduction periods, and that with adequate care, this nightmare is going to be a bad memory soon.

By all means, the integrity of our athletes, officials, judges and of all who integrate our community is now and always essential. We are a family in sport and life.

We can expect to reach the epidemic peak and a progressive settle down, as is already happening in some of the countries in suffering this situation at first instance.

In conclusion, let’s be confident and keep working as a team, following the decisions from the competent authorities. Some events have been canceled and others are being rescheduled to a new date in which we may be able to celebrate with our athletes and friends our passion for sport and healthy lifestyle.

We recommend you visit the IFBB Calendar at our website www.IFBB.com on a regular basis, so that you may be fully updated on events and schedule.

Wishing you, your families and beloved one’s good health, and hoping that the situation will be back to normality as soon as possible
