IBSF world amateur snooker championship in Egypt cancelled!

Post by peterbullen »

The International Billiards & Snooker Federation (IBSF), the world governing body of non-professional snooker, has notified it’s members that 2012 IBSF World Championships in Egypt have been cancelled.

The tournament was supposed to take place in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt from November 4-16.

The Board of the Egyptian Federation of Billiards Sports decided in its meeting yesterday to apologize for not being able to host the 2012 IBSF World Snooker Championships due to “the current security issues, paralleled with a new Minister and regime, and a critical economic situation.”

The president of the IBSF, Pascal Guillaume, said in response to IBSF members: “It is not for me to comment on this decision, but rather to find a solution to our dilemma and provide you with the competition you all expect before the end of this year.”

“You will all be aware that time is very short, but I assure you that the IBSF Board will work to explore all possibilities.”
