Egypt has been announced as the official host for the FIBA Women’s Club Champions Cup, this will mark Egypt’s very first time to host the event, which will be held from December 6th until December 15th at the Cairo Indoor Stadium.

The announcement was made earlier by the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) for Africa, now Egypt is expected to host the competition’s 34th tournament.

Egypt has gave quite the impressive performance at the 3×3 Africa Cup that was held earlier this month in Uganda, after the women’s national team’s remarkable victory over Mali.

That wasn’t the only highlight of the tournament, Soraya Mohamed was certainly another delight as she was named the Top Scorer for Afrobasket 2019.

Ever since the Coronavirus struck the entire globe, many of you people out there were super bummed at the fact that many things are getting postponed and cancelled. At the end of the day though, this is all for your safety and will hopefully help everyone practice maintaining social distancing.

The year 2020 had a lot of events and important competitions in store for us all. For instance, the Olympics that were supposed to be played in Tokyo ended up being postponed until next year. This left a lot of athletes upset and angry at the world.

Now, football has always been one of the main sports that people enjoying following and keeping up with the news, which is why we were all shocked when crucial championships and leagues were postponed and cancelled as well.

The Italian Football Federation claimed on Friday that club matches should start again towards the end of May or the beginning of June. This had been taken under serious speculation and discussion before formulating this kind of decision.

Gabriele Gravina, the president of the Italian Football Federation (FIGC), stated that it would take roughly around three weeks to prepare for the coronavirus lockdown that has strictly been going over there in Italy. It is currently scheduled that the quarantine and curfew will end on May 4th.

“There will be a monitoring period to guarantee that all those taking part are free of the virus. If they are all negative, there is no problem of distancing or contagion,” said Gravina.

“I hope that everyone will be able to play in their own stadium, if that is not possible we will find other solutions .It’s a complex moment for our country, for the economy and for football, which is one of the most important industries, we will find the right way“, he added.

The Italian press claims that both clubs Torino and Brescia denied resuming the league regardless of the decision made. They have made this decision based on the fact that Brescia has been the city to suffer the most throughout this pandemic since nearly 23,000 people were killed.

This will mark the first time for Wimbledon to be canceled ever since World War II back in 1945, it will also mark the first time for the event to not be played during peacetime.

“It is with great regret that the main board of the All England Club and the committee of management of the championships have today decided that The Championships 2020 will be cancelled due to public health concerns linked to the coronavirus epidemic,” the All England Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC) said in a statement.

“The 134th Championships will instead be staged from June 28 to July 11, 2021.”

 

Following the cancellation of such a mega event and with the pandemic worsening in both Europe and the states, the men’s ATP Tour, women’s WTA Tour and the International Tennis Federation have all extended the suspension of professional tennis for another five weeks to July 13.

As much as it saddens us to see our most anticipated events get canceled, it comes as a necessary measure to fight off the virus and limit its spread.
