Coronavirus COVID-19 UpdateTilburg Tournament:
Dear Hockey Friends,
Everybody is aware of the development around the Corona virus and obviously we are daily monitoring the news. We realize that is effecting the decisions around our tournament and we base our own opinion on the Governmental Body in charge of health and safety (RIVM) and the Dutch Hockey Association. When we take our decision whether and when the tournament needs to be cancelled, we need to ensure that also the cost aspect of the decision, for all of us, is taken into consideration. Based on the above and what we see at this moment, we decided to take and communicate the final decision on March 25, 2020. When things develop in the wrong direction and we need to decide earlier, we will obviously do so.
Furthermore we need your help: if your team for whatever reason decides to cancel their participation we need to know asap. We want to stress that final responsibility is in your hands, we can only follow the recommendations and make up our mind taking the full picture and consequences in consideration.
When we need to cancel, which we would not like to do, we already can inform you that all food orders and deposits on team cards will be refunded. We can also confirm that the team fee will be refunded, although we might need to deduct a small amount, to cover the costs we had to make preparing the tournament.
I hope this helps in answering your questions.
Harrie de Kort Chaiman and Gilbert Leene Tournament Director
Coronavirus COVID-19 Update WMH Statement regarding World Cup Tournaments:
The spread of Coronavirus is being monitored by World Masters Hockey and we are aware of concerns National Associations and teams have over the upcoming World Cups. Already certain countries are off limits and there is no knowing what will happen next.
We appreciate that attending our events is expensive and players will naturally be wary about committing large sums of money only to find out there is no tournament. We will do everything in our power to make sure the tournaments take place.
In relation to travel and hotel costs all we can recommend is that you make sure you have adequate insurance in place.
In relation to the entry fees the hosts are already incurring expenditure which will be lost if the tournament is postponed or cancelled. We will work with the hosts to see how we can keep the upfront costs to a minimum. In the event of postponement the fee will be carried forward to the new dates and in the event of cancellation we will do everything we can to recover as much as possible for the participating teams. In this case the balance retained will be distributed equally across all the teams.
We know this is probably not what you want to hear but no-one knows what will happen next and there is still plenty of time for things to improve before the first scheduled tournament.
