The CHI Basel forced to throw the towel once again

30 December 2021

In the last few days, the organizers of the Basel competition, which supports the World Cup stage, were actively sharing the preparations for their 2022 edition, which was to be held from January 13 to 16. Unfortunately, they are once again forced to a stop due to a fifth wave of Covid-19. "The State Council of the Basel-Stadt Canton has revoked the authorization granted on November 15, 2021 for the event. A - different - authorization could have possibly been granted for a closed-door organization. But as the epidemiological situation could worsen further, the organizers have decided with a heavy heart to cancel the event," they announced late yesterday.

After the withdrawal of the stages in Helsinki, Stuttgart, Mechelen, Basel and Amsterdam, the World Cup circuit is once again very impacted in Europe by the pandemic. Only Bordeaux and Gothenburg remain on the program in February before the final in Leipzig in April.
