March 18 –
The coronavirus (Covid-19) has affected the world in an unimaginable and disruptive way. Many of the major sporting events and leagues have either been postponed or canceled. Countries have imposed strict quarantine measures and travel restrictions, causing an almost complete lockdown for all of us. As organizers, we have been preparing for the 2020 Asia Alliance Inline Hockey Cup for close to a year and was really excited due to the number of various club teams that have registered.
However, with the uncertainty on when the Covid-19 situation will become safe to travel and resume our everyday life as we are used to, we regret to announce that the 2020 event will be postponed until further notice. Teams that have paid their entry fees will be credited and will have priority scheduling upon our announcement of the new tournament dates. Should your team decide to request a refund instead, we can process minus the bank transfer fees.
We are as disappointed as everyone but safety is our main priority and we sincerely appreciate your understanding. The Asia Alliance Inline Hockey Cup will definitely be back and even stronger!
On behalf of the AAIHC Committee, we hope that everyone stays safe and healthy.
