Statement about European Championships 2021

This morning, the GB Men’s Team have made the difficult decision to forfeit their 2021 European Championship Gold medal game due to be played later today.

As defending Champions this has been a tremendously hard decision that the team has collectively reached. The Team’s priority remains to safeguard the health and wellbeing of not only the GB athletes and staff members, but also of the wider competition community at the 2021 European Championships in Madrid.

Following a confirmed COVID-19 case within the squad this morning, the team member will now undergo 10 days of isolation in Spain.

Throughout the tournament, British Wheelchair Basketball has given all players and staff members the opportunity to return home, should they have any concerns about Covid-19.

British Wheelchair Basketball has consistently prioritised the health and wellbeing of its players and they return home with the full support of the organisation
