The European Bridge League has now indicated that the European Mixed Teams Championship will be held at the same time as the Open, Women’s and Senior series in Funchal, Madeira from June 17th to 27th 2020.
The International Committee has discussed the implications of this and decided that if a trial is necessary, then players would not be able to participate in the Mixed Team Trials if they have already been offered a place in the Women’s, Senior or Open Teams. Entries will thus close after the trials for the other categories have concluded – February 9th 2020. All other eligible entries would be accepted.
It should be noted that it is extremely unlikely that there would be any funding other than possibly to cover the entry fee.
The weekend of March 14th & 15th 2020 will be set aside should a trial be necessary in whatever format - this will be determined once the number of entries is known.
