Following an online survey of all CIVA delegates and based on that response a formal vote, it has now been decided that –
- The IEAC start date will be deferred by two months from July 4th to September 4th
- The WGAC/WAGAC start date will remain at July 28th as previously scheduled
The EIAC organisers will shortly complete their revised Bulletin for this event, and this will be published here in our championship calendar pages and of course on the FAI website in the CIVA section.
The bureau’s view is that in the currently uncertain Covid situation this is a prudent move. Delaying the start of EIAC by two months should significantly improve the prospect for international travel to and from the event by competitors and officials, and we are optimistic that having a longer period to build a full entry list will strengthen the prospect for another successful and rewarding championship in this category.
