You may have noticed something new, looking at our 2017 calendar.
As a part of the process where the ESF is trying to become more media-friendly and more audience-friendly, a change of the denomination of the ESF competitions has been approved.
The new names correspond with the WBSC events, and they should be easier for understanding among the worldwide softball and non-softball public. In addition, the new names are designed for more fluent use in both written and spoken English.
The list of newly named competitions is below.
