WDSF Presidium approves organisation of Open European Championships 07/09/2020

The Presidium of the World DanceSport Federation (WDSF) today unanimously approved a motion by Vice-President for Sport Nenad Jeftic to allow for the organisation of WDSF Open European Championships for the Senior I and II and U21 categories until the end of the COVID-19 pandemic.

With WDSF World Championships currently on hold due to travel restrictions and other limitations, Jeftic acknowledged the desire among athletes and organisers to return to elite competition and identified the Open European Championships as a satisfactory temporary solution during these unprecedented times.

The decision is aimed at providing organisers who had been granted 2020 WDSF World Championships an opportunity to downgrade their events to European Championships, thereby also bringing a measure of hope and encouragement to our DanceSport community.
