E.B.R.A. disembarks on Australian beaches but cancels Barcelona

E.B.R.A. formalizes the entry into the Association of the BEACH RUGBY AUSTRALIA organization, with the event “SPRING BREAK” in Queensland. “An important step in the implementation of the beach rugby expansion” comments the General Secretary of the B.R.A. Giancarlo Stocco. “It is a project of development of collaboration with international beach rugby events that aims at the territorial development of a movement that has not yet framed the base, namely that of the Clubs”.
To date, only Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal and, from this year, Spain, have a regular national beach rugby championship. E.B.R.A. is in collaboration with these realities inside and outside Europe, to develop a homogeneous movement that can express a true movement of National Representatives in the future.
The negative note is the cancellation of the Spanish leg of Barcelona. “It is a real shame and a step backwards on certain projects. E.B.R.A. asked certain conditions to stay within the Organization and for the organization of the event. We do not expect the perfection that we know to be difficult for everyone to reach, but certain relationships within and outside of E.B.R.A. must be respected. “Stage and role within E.B.R.A. suspended for 2019? “Exactly. It was decided after months of discussions and research of possible solutions. It is a postponement to September to meet again and resume talks. September will be a very important Assembly for the definition of the future roles of all in the international scenario of beach rugby “. Udine will host the General Assembly of the Ebra on 21 September. Once again, Friuli Venezia Giulia becomes the international scenario of the beach rugby movement.
