No World Masters Orienteering Championships in Slovakia in 2020

Dear sports friends,

In recent days we have had to make the most difficult decision yet regarding organization of the Orienteering Masters community’s biggest festival. Unfortunately, the spread of the coronavirus pandemic has not yet been stopped. Expert opinions convinced us that ensuring the health of WMOC participants, which is our priority, is an unmanageable task for the organizational team. Therefore, in agreement with the IOF, WMOC 2020 is rescheduled to an unspecified date.

We are in negotiations with the IOF regarding the organization of the championship in Slovakia in any of the following years. We are also in consultation with the IOF about the financial settlements for registered participants.We will inform you of the new date as well as the terms of the financial settlement as soon as possible. Please be patient and indulgent in this difficult situation.

Let us wish you good health and express our support to everyone affected by the Covid-19 pandemic in any way. And also to express our belief that we will all gladly meet when the WMOC in Slovakia returns.
