Federation renounces the organization of the short pool Europeans of 2021


The Portuguese Swimming Federation (FPN) today announced the resignation of the organization of the European short swimming pool of 2021, justifying it with changing conditions of the promised support by the Lisbon city council.

"The FPN decided to renounce the organization of the European short swimming pool, planned for the Portuguese capital in 2021, following the recent and unexpected decision of the Lisbon City Council not to confirm the conditions initially assumed by this entity, when applying for the event in Lisbon , European Capital of Sport, "he said.

The federation understands that, faced with this change in assumptions, it was "forced to make such a difficult decision", which was "unanimous" at a meeting on Friday, confirmed on Saturday by the territorial associations and general assembly.

"Not wanting to compromise the viability of the organizational quality of the event and the future of national swimming, FPN informed the LEN (European Swimming League) of the withdrawal of this organization," the FPN said in a statement.
