7th FISU World University Bridge Championships


7th FISU World University Bridge Championships

Participation in online and physical FISU events in 2014

The ABF has received the following from Geert Magerman  :

For the 4th time, we will start the online World university Bridge Championships organised by FISU and WBF. We have noticed that a university bridge team of your country is participating, for which we thank you. We will be around 60 university teams in this online championships. The complete list with all the teams and names of the students can be found on www.unibridge.eu .

Unfortunately, we see that in the Physical FISU events, the participation is much lower, around 20 university bridge teams. This number is decreasing, and if this decrease continues, we will not be able to remain a sport within FISU and lose the online as well as the physical events.

Therefore we encourage your federation to send also a team to the FISU event in November 2014 in Croatia. You find all details below this letter. If there is a specific reason why an entry would not be possible, financial or otherwise, please inform Geert Magerman by email at : geert.magerman@telenet.be to see how and if we can help your federation.

Thank you in advance!

Best Regards,

Geert Magerman                                                             G. Rona
