One of the most anticipated events of the season, the 2021 EKF Senior Championships is scheduled to be held in Porec (Croatia) from May 19 to 23. Included in the Olympic qualification process and co-organised by the EKF and the Croatian Karate Union, the event is expected to capture the interest of the sport while attracting a massive number of competitors.
During Mr Cipek’s visit, a virtual meeting was held with members of the local organising team connecting remotely. The logistic provisions of the event as well as the arrangements to apply the WKF COVID-19 Protocol were on top of the agenda.
“The safety and wellbeing of the competitors are our main priority. We are devoting great efforts to guarantee the best conditions for the event. I am convinced that the 2021 EKF Senior Championships will not only be an outstanding sporting event; it will capture the essence of Karate and it will delight fans in Europe and all over the world,” said EKF and WKF President Antonio Espinós.
“I want to thank Mr Davor Cipek for taking the time to come to Madrid and for the great work that the Croatian Karate Union is doing to ensure that the event will be a huge success,” added Mr Espinós.
