2021 Canada Cup - Notice of Cancellation
With great disappointment, the Board of Directors of the Canadian Amateur Sport Society, organizers of the Canada Cup International Softball Championship, are formally announcing the cancellation of the 2021 event.
For the past few months, we have been in constant communication with government bodies including the BC Provincial Health Authority and the City of Surrey as well as sport partners including Softball Canada and Softball BC, and we have been reviewing what may be possible with all the current COVID-19 restrictions. We have always strictly adhered to the advice, recommendations, and guidelines from our government partners to ensure we host a safe and successful Canada Cup.
The safety and health of our volunteers, athletes, partners, sponsors, fans, host committee, and staff is first and foremost, and we cannot confidently proceed with the current COVID-19 status in Surrey, BC. Crucial factors which influenced the decision to cancel our 2021 event are the restrictions on international and cross-border travel, the 14-day mandatory quarantine for all international visitors, the uncertain ability of teams to compete safely, the restricted number of people that can publicly gather, and the overall guidance of the provincial health authority which states that no large-scale events will occur this summer.
Our Organizing Committee and volunteers remain extremely proud of the generation of young women and girls who have been inspired by watching their heroes compete, by gaining hundreds of scholarship opportunities, and by experiencing the thrill of elite competition during the 25+ years of the Canada Cup era. Our Organizing Committee is as committed as always to allow this experience to continue by organizing a better than ever 2022 Canada Cup International Softball Championship.
We sincerely thank those groups that have supported Canada Cup during these uncertain times including our world renown Organizing Committee and volunteer group, our sport partners (Softball Canada and Softball BC), our sponsors, our vendors, softball organizations around the world, umpires, and softball fans. We are confident that the passion and excitement you have brought to the Canada Cup in past years will be on display in 2022. We are proud to announce the tentative dates for Canada Cup 2022 - June 24 - July 3, 2022 - and we look forward to seeing you all again next summer!
Please take care and stay safe.
