The Organising Commmittee of the Luxembourg Euro Meet has decided to cancel the Euro Meet planned for the weekend of 28-30 January 2022 due to the situation of the COVID-19 pandemic with the current Omicron wave and the strict legal COVID regulations in place in Luxembourg and surrounding countries.
Meet Director Serge Hollerich says that ‘the upcoming Omicron wave is expected to hit Luxembourg in the next few weeks and does not allow us to continue with the organization of the Euro Meet 2022. This is a very difficult decision to take, and we feel very sorry for all the athletes, volunteers and judges who already registered for the competition. However, we believe that this is the right decision taking into account that the health of everybody is most important in these difficult times.
Marco Stacchiotti, President of FLNS, adds that ‘even if this now already the second time that we need to cancel the Euro Meet due to the pandemic, we stay optimistic that we will be back stronger than ever with the 2023 edition of the Euro Meet.
We would like to thank our partners for their ongoing trust and support in these difficult times and wish all athletes great success for 2022 and hope to see everybody back next January in Luxembourg.
