WBSC postpones 2020 U18 Women’s World Cup

The World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) today announced the postponement of this year’s WBSC U-18 Women’s Softball World Cup which was originally scheduled to take place in August due to the ongoing spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

Following a video conference on Tuesday with WBSC Continental Associations and Local Organising Committees, the WBSC took the decision to postpone the event until further notice out of consideration of player, personnel and spectator health and safety measures against the spread of the coronavirus.

The WBSC U-18 Women’s Softball World Cup was due to be held from 23-30 August in Lima, Peru.

Keeping in mind the latest developments concerning the coronavirus, the WBSC will continue to review possible options over the coming weeks, together with the Local Organising Committee and WBSC Continental Associations, to find new dates for the event later in the year.
