European Youth Olympic Festival postponed for a year to 2022


The 2021 Summer European Youth Olympic Festival (EYOF) has been postponed by a year, the European Olympic Committees (EOC) have said, to avoid a conflict in schedule with the re-arranged Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

Originally scheduled to take place from July 24 to August 1, 2021, in Banska Bystrica in Slovakia, the Festival has been moved back to 2022.

This comes as a knock-on effect of the postponement of the Tokyo Games, which will now start on July 24, 2021, having also been moved back a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
