SameJudo Club regrets to announce that SameJudo Cup 5 scheduled for March 21-22, 2020 is being canceled due to dynamic changes in the global health situation related to the rapid spread of the coronavirus.
During the events organized so far, our priority was the highest organizational quality, and in the current situation of an epidemiological threat, we cannot guarantee the safety of players, parents, fans, coaches and other people participating in our event.
For us as - the organizers of a powerful international event - the health of the participants is the most important thing, and in the current situation around the world - no one can ensure it. Throughout the year 'Same Judo' and other entities associated with the organization of the tournament worked with great care on the various stages of the competition. The event itself is a logistically difficult undertaking that requires the involvement of not only the organizer, but also the cooperation of many administrative bodies.
Having in mind over 800 foreign players who had planned participation in the tournament - to avoid the risk of canceling the event a day or a few days before the scheduled start - we decided to do it much earlier, giving players as much time as possible to change their start plans, and minimizing the financial loss related to participation in SameJudo Cup of our guests who planned to come from 25 countries around the world.
We apologize to all young judokas, persons involved in the organization and people who were to come to the tournament. We have already started to work to make the fifth edition of our tournament perfect! At the same time, we strive to announce the new date of this great event as soon as possible still in 2020.
With sports greetings, SameJudo Club
