First stage of 2020 Hyundai Archery World Cup in Guatemala City cancelled

12 March 2020
Lausanne, Switzerland
The cancellation notice was received by World Archery on Thursday 12 March.

The first stage of the 2020 Hyundai Archery World Cup in Guatemala City has been cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. It was due to be held on 20-26 April.

Restrictions from the Guatemalan government on the hosting of large events, quarantine policies and bans on international travel from certain countries made organising the first stage of the international circuit untenable.

Member associations will receive practical information regarding bookings when this is available.

Opportunities to reschedule or replace the event later in the year are being investigated. However, given the current situation, any decision will be made at a later date.

The event in Guatemala had no direct qualification implications for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The status of other major events is being monitored.
