The 2020 European Rowing Junior Championships have been confirmed.
The event, previously scheduled for May 30-31, will now take place September 26-27 in Belgrade, Serbia.
“The Serbian Rowing Federation and the European Rowing Board (ERB) have been closely monitoring the evolving pandemic situation and, with the support of the Serbian and Belgrade governments, have put in place a plan to host the event using the Event Infection Prevention Guidelines (Guidelines Link) based on the recommendations of the World Health Organisation (WHO) and FISA Sports Medicine Commission,” according to a release from FISA.
The regatta is the second confirmed event on the 2020 FISA calendar joining the 2020 European Rowing Under 23 Championships which will take place in Duisburg, Germany, September 5-6.
A decision is expected to be made for the viability of the 2020 European Rowing Championships in late July. The race is currently scheduled to happen October 9-11 in Poznan, Poland.
