IGF Statement: Heeding the IOC Resolution on the Ukraine Crisis
The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has passed a resolution urging all International Federations to relocate or cancel their events currently planned in Russia or Belarus.
The IGF has no plans to stage any events in either country and urges all regional associations/federations and all IGF association members to relocate or cancel any events currently planned in Russia or Belarus.
In addition, until further notice, no Russian or Belarussian flags will be displayed at events under IGF’s auspices. The Russian or Belarussian players participating in IGF events will be identified with the IGF flag. Regional associations/federations and IGF association members are urged to adopt a similar policy.
This statement is being sent to all IGF members and association members confirming IGF’s strong condemnation of the invasion of Ukraine by Russia with support of Belarus and expressing IGF’s unwavering solidarity with our Ukrainian friends.
