WESTERN ARMENIA – CONIFA can confirm that the 2021 European Football Cup (EFC), to be held in Nice, France, has been postponed from June 9-19 to July 7-17.
In light of ongoing coronavirus guidelines, the conclusion was reached following positive dialogue between CONIFA officials and qualified members, plus the organizing committee both within the governing body and on the ground in Nice.
European President, Alberto Rischio, said: “The shift has been made to give teams more time to organize themselves around covid-19 restrictions and because many European League Championships are in the process of a return to action.
“The federations have asked to delay the competition so they can have access to the best players.”
Following the withdrawal of Northern Cyprus, who have suspended activities for the year, CONIFA can also confirm the addition of Two Sicilies to the competition.
They will slot into Group A alongside the host side, County of Nice, and Sardinia, meaning a mouth-watering Italian derby awaits in the French Riviera this summer.
