STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® COVID-19 UPDATE

+++ All TIMBERSPORTS® activities worldwide cancelled until end of April 2020 +++

+++ All international competitions in May 2020 cancelled +++

 

 

Dear TIMBERSPORTS® fans around the world,

We have made the executive decision to cancel all activities worldwide due to take place between Friday 13th March, and the end of April 2020 due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. All international competitions will also be cancelled up until the end of May 2020.

This will include the STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® World Trophy 2020 and the STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® Rookie World Championship, which were due to take place on Thursday 21st May and Friday 22nd May respectively, at the Rathausplatz in Vienna, Austria. Both events will not be rescheduled in 2020.

In addition to competitions, all STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® activities including training camps, sports meetings, newcomer camps and shows due to happen until the end of April 2020 will also be cancelled.

Please rest assured that this decision was not taken lightly, but upon continuously screening the situation, we felt these measures necessary to help protect the health and the wellbeing of the general public.

We will continue to monitor the situation on a daily basis and provide updates accordingly, but thank you for your understanding and consideration at this difficult time.

STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® will consider whether to apply these measures beyond April 2020 and a decision will be made and action taken in due time.

Already purchased tickets for an upcoming STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® competition that has been cancelled will be refunded. More information on affected events will be provided on this website.
