Cancellation of the EnBW DTB Pokal 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic

With a heavy heart we have to bring the following statement to your attention:

Again in 2021, the gymnastics highlight in Stuttgart with the All-Around World Cup and the Team Challenge cannot be held due to the COVID-19 pandemic. For the second time, the organisers of the Swabian Gymnastics Federation have had to cancel the EnBW DTB Pokal (19 - 21 March 2021) in Stuttgart due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic. The reasons for this cancellation are the increased costs and the risk of cancellation at short notice by the authorities or COVID-19 outbreaks on site.

"Of course, it was very difficult to make this decision. But for the sake of our Federation and the many delegations from all over the world who wanted to be our guests, we had to make a final decision. We are incredibly sorry, not only for the athletes but also for the many gymnastics fans," says Wolfgang Drexler, President of the Swabian Gymnastics Federation.

The CEO of the Swabian Gymnastics Federation, Matthias Ranke, goes into further detail: "We tried everything to make the event possible, but in the light of the current development we almost certainly have to assume that the EnBW DTB Pokal would have to take place without an audience, with would lead to missing ticket revenue. In addition, the necessary hygiene measures would have resulted in significant additional costs. All of this leads to an enormous financial gap for the entire event. Even with the most meticulous pre-planning, there would have been the risk that the event would have had to be cancelled at short notice – either due to a COVID-19 outbreak during the EnBW DTB Pokal or due to an announcement by an authority or the state government."

The Swabian Gymnastics Federation will discuss if another gymnastics event can be organised in Stuttgart in the fall this year. The German Gymnastics Federation, the official organiser of the All-Around World Cup event in Germany, is also currently checking whether the All-Around World Cup can be hosted at an alternative location in Germany.
