FISU AMERICA, in view of the recent development of the COVID-19 pandemic (coronavirus) in the Americas and the world, the Executive Committee of FISUAMERICA together with the Organizing Committee of the II FISUAMERICA games Mérida 2020 have decided, as an emergency preventive measure, temporarily suspend the II FISU AMERICA GAMES that would take place between May 30 and June 11 in the city of Mérida – Yucatán – México. Likewise, we inform that we will communicate the new date of the event at least 60 days in advance.
The measure is in line with the decision made by national governments and international Sports Federations, today we received it from our subsidiary CONDDE, informing us about the recommendation of the Department of Health, the Secretary of Public Education and the National Council of Physical and Sports Culture from Mexico that suspended all sports activities, as the coronavirus contagion curve will peak in the coming months of April and May.
This decision aims to protect the health of all members of the FISU AMERICA family, especially our students/athletes, involved in the events.
We inform you that the meeting of heads of mission to be held from April 2 to 5, 2020 is also suspended.
FISUAMERICA a continent, a passion.
