WBSC Europe has confirmed the the postponement of the next European Baseball Softball Congress to November 2021. The exact date of the congress will be set at a later date. The elective congress was originally set to take place in February 2021.

Rome, the Italian capital, will host the WBSC Europe Elective Congress that will also include WBSC Europe Softball and Baseball Division Congresses.

An official note by WBSC Europe stated that the main reason for the decision was the uncertain COVID-19 situation, with many countries applying travel restrictions.
