Unfortunately the XXIII AUSTRIAN BACKGAMMON OPEN & AUSTRIAN DOUBLES CHAMPIONSHIP – 33rd ITALIAN BACKGAMMON CHAMPIONSHIP scheduled to take place in Casino Seefeld (Austria) from Wednesday 1st till Sunday 5th December, 2021 is cancelled due to the Austrian lockdown.

The management of the Casino Seefeld  wrote the following: “now it is sadly happened nobody wants to. We are from Monday 22nd November to 12th December in a total lockdown in Austria. So we cannot organize Backgammon Open at our Casino in Seefeld. Please contact your players and give them the information.”

We cannot fight against the regulations of the Austrian government. It’s a real pity, because it is the second time in a row.

To all fans and admirers of the events organized by WBF and CASINOS AUSTRIA we will meet next year. Soon I will inform you about the new dates.

Thank you for your understanding,
Marco Fornasir – WBF General Secretary
