The UNIF World Futnet Championship should have been return to the Czech Republic after a four-year break. In 2016, the World Championship was hosted by Brno. In Prague, the championship, where the Czechs rank among the top leaders, is presented for the first time ever.
However all players and fans have to wait for the futnet championship premiere in Prague a bit longer. Due to global pandemic COVID-19 and the still non-improving and unclear situation include government measures, the organizers were forced to postpone the futnet championship for a year.
The new date of the World Futnet Championships in Prague is set for November 26-28, 2021. The organizing team is currently working on several schedules in which it will be possible to carry out the international event in the best possible way and in compliance with all applicable government measures and rules.
Unfortunately, the domestic and international situation is changing almost every day. We believe that we will soon publish the mentioned schedules for the organization of this futnet event and, most importantly, that we will soon see each other on the futnet playgrounds and auditoriums.
The last home championship, which took place four years ago in the Moravian capital, was attended by more than six thousand spectators during the three-day tournament. It has become the largest and most successful event in the history of this traditional Czech sport.
More than 250 players from more than 20 countries from all over the world and a total of 4 continents will take part in the tournament in singles, pairs and triples from 27 to 29 November 2020.
The Olympic champions in modern pentathlon 2012 David Svoboda and actor and moderator Ondřej Sokol became the official ambassadors of the championship.
