CAZOVA World Championship Qualification Postponed

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, July 9, 2020 - A meeting of the CAZOVA National Federations was held on July 1, 2020, chaired by CAZOVA President, Mushtaque Mohammed.

In our last release of March 27, we advised that the Senior World Championship Qualification originally scheduled for June and July were being postponed due to COVID19, with rescheduled dates to be advised.

However, we note that the situation as it relates to the spread of the virus has not abated, which has severely hampered countries ability to train, with borders still closed or open with restrictions.

Due to the uncertainty, CAZOVA has taken the decision to cancel all championships for 2020.  This includes the CAZOVA U23 Championship which was scheduled to have taken place in the Dominican Republic in June.

NORCECA has also taken the decision to cancel the beach tour which was due to start in Mexico. The semi-final of the Olympic Qualification tournament is currently scheduled for Nicaragua from the 27-29 August 2020 but CAZOVA president is not optimistic that that tournament will celebrated as the Covid-19 cases are increasing and countries borders are not yet open.

CAZOVA Qualification rounds of the 2020 world championships were also cancelled. We will revisit our options to host these events later this year to be able to reschedule the events for 2021 also taking into consideration the status of Covid-19.

Any further information regarding these tournaments will be advised accordingly.
