It is with the deepest regret that World Skate Europe report that Umberto Urninati, former President of the Speedskating Technical Committee for 20 years, has passed away.
The World Skate Europe presents sincere and deepest condolences to his family.
Considering the current state of the pandemic and the slow and gradual resumption of social and economic activity in Europe, although with positive signs for the future, World Skate Europe considers that there is still no total security in terms of public health, to hold Championships that involve a high number of sports agents and, consequently, travel within European territory.
Consequently, all competitions held until September 30, 2020 are CANCELLED, namely:
- Junior and Senior Woman European Championships
- Under 18 and Under 16 European Championships
- Junior and Senior European Championships
- Other European Competitions
- Show and Precision European Championships
- Cadet, Youth, Junior and Senior European Championships
- Under 17 European Championships
- Under 19 European Championships
The Championships to be held between October 1st and December 31st remain suspended and a new evaluation will be made until the end of July.
It is further informed that World Skate Europe will give priority to the organization of these Championships to Countries that were already assumed as organizers in 2020.
With the background of the current pandemic situation that Europe is experiencing, and after considering our concerns with the Federations and Clubs, in shared cooperation, it is our belief that, after receiving your points of view, that there are no conditions to complete the European Club Competitions, nor to hold the Senior Man European Championship, in France.
This is an important moment for us to appeal to the collective sense and start the process of preparing the European Clubs and Nations Competitions for the coming season.
WORLD SKATE EUROPE PRESIDENT
I inform that today, 23rd of April, I have designated the new President and the new Vice-Presidents of the World Skate Europe Rink-Hockey.

Please be informed that, taking into account the state of the pandemic that is afflicting the whole world and following various information already issued by some Technical Committees of World Skate Europe:
- all Continental European Competitions, of all disciplines, are temporarily suspended.
World Skate Europe, in strict collaboration with World Skate, will monitor the development of the situation and, in due course, and when the various states of emergency of the various countries in Europe are raised, it will evaluate the possible dates of the various competitions.
The World is a stage of change, ever faster, more and more vertiginous.
No other sport reflects this change more than Skating, whether in a connection of a jump in the beauty of the Artistic, in the acceleration of the Speed or in the competitiveness of the Hockey, in Traditional or in Line.
Skates have enchanted successive generations and are gaining a growing number of fans, increasingly determined, increasingly focused. And more and more in love. Healthy competition is a welcome step and one that must be promoted in order to attract even more people to the sport, raising it to the level it deserves.
This space serves as a reference and to publicize the events of the Technical Committees of each Discipline that, under a common roof, work for the enhancement of the nobility of Skating.
Welcome to this space! To our site! May it please everyone.
O Mundo é um palco de mudança, cada vez mais rápida, cada vez mais vertiginosa.
E nenhuma modalidade reflete mais essa mudança que a Patinagem, seja na ligação de um salto na beleza da Artística, na aceleração da Velocidade ou na competitividade do Hóquei, em Patins ou em Linha.
Os patins têm encantado sucessivas gerações e vão ganhando um crescente número de adeptos, cada vez mais determinados, cada vez mais focados. E cada vez mais apaixonados. A competição, salutar, é um passo que se saúda e que se deve promover no sentido de cativar ainda mais gente para a modalidade, elevando-a ao patamar que merece.
Este espaço serve para referência e para divulgação dos eventos dos Comités de cada Disciplina que, sob um teto comum, trabalham pelo engrandecimento da nobreza da Patinagem. Bem-vindos a este espaço! Ao nosso site! Que seja do agrado de todos.
