Weather disruption alters schedule for Women's Softball European Cups

The Women's Softball European Cups have been impacted by adverse weather conditions, causing adjustments to the schedules for days 5 and 6 of the competitions. The inclement weather, marked by heavy rain, has prompted the organizers to take necessary measures to ensure the safety of the players and the integrity of the games.

For the Women's Softball European Cup Winners Cup B, day 5 games have been temporarily put on hold due to the persistent heavy rainfall. Both the Local Organising Committee and the WBSC Europe Technical Commissioners have collaborated to strategize a potential resumption of play at 14:00 local time. As the situation unfolds, further details will be communicated to all stakeholders to ensure a well-informed decision.
Streaming won't be available for the day.

Meanwhile, the final day of the Women's Softball European Premier Cup faces a weather-related challenge as well, with a significant amount of rain forecasted in Saronno. In response, event authorities have taken swift action by adjusting the schedule. The bronze medal game, originally slated for 16:30, has been expedited to 9:30, followed by the gold medal match, now set for noon. These modifications aim to mitigate the impact of adverse weather and allow the games to proceed without compromising safety.

In Caronno Pertusella, the site of the Women's Softball European Cup Winners Cup A, the weather-induced adjustments continue. The bronze medal game is rescheduled for 10:00, followed by the gold medal match at 12:30.

Games numbered 22, 23, and 24, the round robin to define the final standings positions from fifth to seventh, will unfortunately not be played due to the ongoing weather challenges. Consequently, the final rankings for positions 5, 6, and 7 will be determined based on the outcomes of the round-robin matches.

The new schedules are available on the WBSC Europe events websites:
