IWRF Board Statement on Covid 19 dated June 2, 2020

The IWRF Board of Directors have chosen to continue the suspension all IWRF sanctioned events and officials travel until further notice. This suspension will be revisited periodically by the Board of Directors.

There will be no IWRF sanctioned international competitions in 2020.

As governments start to relax isolation requirements and the restrictions on the movement of people due to COVID19, member nations should at minimum follow their respective national governmental guidance provided in relation to sporting activities, to ensure the safety and well-being of athletes, coaches, staff and volunteers.

The IWRF has established a Medical Advisory Group to develop wheelchair rugby specific recommendations related to return to train and play.

“The welfare of our athletes and the wider “Rugby family” is central to our decision making”.
