Last year did not go as we planned, the year 2021 will be ours

The year 2020 went down in history with one big splash. The pandemic hit the world across all sectors and paralyzed the society as a whole. Including sports. However, we believe that the unfavorable situation will soon turn in our way we want and we will be able to strain the nets and spin the balls again not only on the futnet fields.

This year, in addition to constantly dealing with the pandemic situation, another challenge awaits us. In 2021, the Czech Futnet Association will celebrate its 50th anniversary.

"This is an extraordinary event for the Czech futnet. It is unbelievable that our traditional and favourite sport across all generations has been with us for half a century," notes Kamil Kleník, president of the Czech Futnet Association, adding: "We will do everything we can to celebrate this important milestone with sport and in the shortest possible time and we return to futnet as we know it. The reward at the end could be the World Championship hosted by Prague in autumn."

Due to the pandemic situation, countless sporting events were canceled and postponed last yearall over the world, including the largest holiday on the planet - the Olympic Games. Among the postponed events was the futnet championship in Prague as well, which will take place on a new date - November 2021.

"Postponing the World Championship is not easy and it can be said that it is still a challenge for us. We closely monitor the situation of the situation not only in our country, but also abroad, where we are in contact with registered participants. We are currently working on several scenarios in which it would be possible to organize the World Championship and play it properly and do not endanger anyone, whether from a sports, economic and especially health point of view," reveals Kleník.

How all this will turn out is difficult to estimate at this time. We firmly believe that all of our responsible behavior and joint efforts will help bring the sport back to normal, and we will soon begin to meet again, both on sports grounds and in auditoriums around the world, as one big futnet family.
