The bad news comes for canoe polo national teams as the Royal Spanish Canoe Federation officially announced the withdrawal from the organisation of the 2021 ECA Canoe Polo European Championships.
Burriana (Castellón) was supposed to host this year’s ECA Canoe Polo European Championships in late summer, however the difficult and uncertain times have forced the organisers to take the hard decision and to cancel the planned tournament. One of the main reasons for cancellation, besides the health situation, was also the proximity of the Canoe Polo World Championships which was postponed from last year.
"Canoeing Federation of the Valencian Community is sorry to make such a decision, because after organising the European Clubs Championships in 2016, we were very excited about this Championships. We appreciate the trust that you put in us, but no one could foresee that the world was going to go through the moments we are going through and that it was going to impact everyone's life in this way," they wrote in the official cancellation letter.
