Dear Lacrosse Community,
it was not easy making this decision, but we cancel the Berlin Open 2020 due to the current situation with COVID-19.
It is a worldwide pandemic and Berlin Open is an international tournament with teams and referees from all over the globe. We can’t predict what kind of situation we will have in July, however the health of each individual is more important than everything else. That is why we think it is the best for all of us to cancel this year’s Berlin Open Lacrosse tournament. In addition to that, it is currently not possible to book hotel rooms in Berlin, booked rooms for referees were cancelled from the hotel and it is currently just not possible for us to prepare a large tournament like this. We really hope that this message comes early enough that you can still cancel flights and accommodation, if already booked.
We are sorry and so sad not meeting you this summer, not seeing great Lacrosse games, not drinking some beers with you, not having a great weekend with people from all over the world. But we will be back in 2021 and hope to see you then.
Thank you for your understanding. Stay healthy and stay home!
The Berlin Open Crew!
