Groups announced for European Cup Qualifiers, Venue change

BB European Club Competition Comments Off on Groups announced for European Cup Qualifiers, Venue change

The Technical Commission of the Confederation of European Baseball (CEB), besides the schedules for the European Cups, also announced the groups for the European Cup Qualifiers. They will be played from Monday, June 17 to Saturday, June 23.

Additionally it was revealed that not Brest (Belarus), but Karlovac (Croatia) will host the fourth EC Qualifier. Athens (Greece), Antwerp (Belgium) and Senart (France) already were confirmed earlier. There was a question mark for Brest from the beginning because of the uncertainty of the newly formed Belarus Baseball Federation.

Two more changes were announced in the press release. The Swedish Baseball and Softball Federation won’t be sending a team to the EC Qualifiers in 2013. Therefore two more spots will be hopefully filled in the coming weeks. Furthermore the finals at each tournament no longer will be played in a best-of-three format, but the winner will be determined in a single final game between the 1st and 2nd ranked teams.

The draws for the groups has been made. For the schedule format, see below.
