Coronavirus makes no celebration of MICBasketball 2020
The MIC Direction Committee has been in contact with the governmental authorities, being constantly updated on the growing problems affecting public health by the spread of coronavirus (COVID–19). The current situation has led to the Catalonia General Secretary of Sports to communicate to us the imperative of cancelling the MIC edition this Easter.
Due to the unquestionable seriousness of the pandemic, in conjunction with the aforementioned statement from the General Secretary of Sports, we are compelled to officially inform the public that we will not be celebrating the MICBasketball 2020 tournament that had been scheduled for April 9th-12th.
The organization deeply regrets not being able to celebrate this year’s edition. As always, much effort has been dedicated to organizing the tournament, but it is essential to face the fact that we are in a highly exceptional and unpredictable situation that requires acting with the utmost responsibility. For this reason, both the Tournament Management and the competent authorities have prioritized the well-being and health of all participants (teams, supporters and volunteers).
We appreciate the understanding of all involved and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. We hope those who have been affected will understand and recognize the prudence in choosing to cancel the tournament in the current circumstances.
At MICSports, we will continue to work with the same enthusiasm as always in celebrating all future editions.
