  • June 25 – Parade of delegations and opening party
  • June 28 – Social Party (in which all participants will have a free tasting and the venue of the new European Championship will be announced)
  • June 30 – Authorities Dinner

We also have some activities prepared for each afternoon/evening, many of which are near the beach.

We have also planned that the traditional “Meeting point” become a real “Fan Zone” in which to chat.


This Championship, unlike the previous ones, has some features that make it especially interesting:

  1. The Championship will be called “OPEN” because its participation is open to Non-European Teams, which, in the second phase, will compete for  “Rest of the World” classification.
  2. With almost total certainty, teams from all continents will participate, since we have confirmed the presence of American, Asian, African and Oceanian teams in addition to European ones.

Resolution for the final standings in the category of F55





In the City of Buenos Aires, on 20 July of 2022.

The Honorable Disciplinary Board of FIMBA gathers to decide about the not attendance of the LATVIAN team “Latvijas Purenes” to the final game of the category F55+, during the last FIMBA European Championship, in Malaga 2022.

According to the previous resolutions of this Disciplinary Board, a team withdrawal before the end of a tournament or its refusal to compete for any position in a final or semifinal game, shall determine its score loss and to be placed in the last position of the Championship.

Although it is true that the players inform to the organizing committee, before the beginning of the championship, that they could not play on Sunday, the reality it is that an Organizer cannot modify the schedule of such a big championship, with so many games (almost 500), based on a supposition that a team could reach the final game or not. Especially, when the previous day, Saturday 25/6, had reached the limit of number of games allowed for that day. And most of all, because the championship finishes on Sunday.

On the other hand, even when the rules and regulations are clear about the penalties that the players, the delegate and the captain of the team should receive for not attending to the final game (Art. 63. Suspension of all the players for 1 to 3 years and a fine of USD 500.-), this Disciplinary Board will take in consideration the information that the team gave to the Organizing Committee (expressed in the previous paragraph) and will not apply those sanctions.

A different resolution needs to be adopted regarding to the final position that the team should have in the category, because a team that withdraws in the final game of a Championship cannot pretend a medal for that behavior.

Therefore, this HDBF decides that the Latvian Team should be placed in the last position of the Category F55+ and the teams that were in the 3rd, 4th and 5th position, should receive the Silver, Bronce and Iron medals respectively.

Finally, this resolution will be send to the Competition Commission, in order to review the rules and regulations and to include that a team that withdraws before the end of a tournament should be placed in the last position of the category.
