世界体育大会已确认,由于在中国爆发新型冠状病毒,2020年世界体育大会与峰决定不会在北京举行。

According to the original plan, the 18th SportAccord will be held in Beijing from April 19th to 24th this year, where it is expected to brings nearly 2,000 delegates together worldwide. In addition to that, a significant number of participating countries, organizations, companies and institutions to put on exhibitions during the event.

Raffaele Chiulli, President SportAccord, said: “In the past few weeks, we have been following the development of the epidemic closely. The Chinese Government has taken effective efforts, unprecedented measures and all possible resources to combat the epidemic. We do believe that the Chinese Government and people in China have the capabilities to have the final win of the war against the virus.”

世界体育大会主席拉法尔·邱利在一份声明中说:“过去几周我们一直密切关注着疫情的发展情况,中国政府为了抗击疫情做了很多卓有成效的努力,我们相信中国人民会最终赢得这场胜利。”

“SportAccord has developed a mutual and respectful working relationship with the Local Organizing Committee. We had no doubt that our hosts would deliver an exceptional SportAccord and we are grateful to Beijing for the support and all the efforts it has made for preparing SportAccord 2020.” Considering the epidemic in China and around the world and taking into account the various factors of such force majeure situation, we have reached a difficult decision that SportAccord 2020 will not take place in Beijing. We apologize for any inconvenience thus caused.” SportAccord is now exploring contingency options for relocating the World Sport & Business Summit 2020 so that it can still take place from 19-24 April 2020.


“我们与当地组委会建立了良好的合作关系,我们坚信中国可以呈现出一次特别的盛会,我们对北京方面做出的努力表示感谢。但考虑到很多不可抗拒因素,在与当地组委会商议之后,我们做出艰难的决定,取消这次在北京举行的世界体育大会,对此我表示抱歉。”邱利说。同时,世界体育大会将进行商议,选择出合适的举办地点,确保本次大会可以如期进行。
