STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® COVID-19 - UPDATE

Dear TIMBERSPORTS® fans around the world,

The safety and health of our spectators, athletes and employees continue to have the highest priority. In this regard, we had to make the decision to cancel all TIMBERSPORTS® events scheduled to take place until end of June 2020 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

This includes the STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® World Trophy 2020 and the STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® Rookie World Championship, which were due to take place on Thursday 21 May and Friday 22 May respectively, at the Rathausplatz in Vienna, Austria. Neither event will be rescheduled in 2020.

In addition to competitions, all STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® activities including training camps, sports meetings, newcomer camps and shows due to happen before the end of June 2020 will also be cancelled. Please be assured that this decision was not taken lightly, but upon continuously screening the situation, we felt these measures necessary to help protect public health and general wellbeing.

We will continue to monitor the situation on a daily basis and provide updates accordingly and thank you for your understanding and consideration at this difficult time. STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® will consider whether to apply further measures beyond June 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.

We hope to continue our sports activities as soon as responsibly possible. If, like us, you are missing our sport greatly, you can find highlights and broadcasts from past events on our YouTube channel:
