Canada Cup 2020

Surrey, BC - - Canada Cup 2020


      - Cancelled for 2020

The Board of Directors of the Canadian Amateur Sport Society, organizers of the Canada Cup International Softball Championship held annually for the past 25 years at Softball City, have spent the past few months reviewing what may be probable, possible and not possible with respect to COVID - 19 and Canada Cup 2020.

Throughout the uncertainty we have been in communication with the BC Provincial Health Authority, the City of Surrey as well as sport government bodies including Softball Canada. We have always been committed in following their recommendations and guidance in any decisions that apply to hosting a safe and successful Canada Cup.

It has become apparent if we hosted Canada Cup 2020 the safety and health of our host committee, staff, volunteers, partners, sponsors, fans and the athletes could not be confidently guaranteed. Our main and constant priority is the safety of everyone that makes Canada Cup the first class event which inspires young talent, promotes the sport and enhances community involvement.

Due to the above, we have made the difficult and distressing decision to cancel Canada Cup 2020.

We cannot thank you enough for your support and commitment to the sport of softball and being a critical piece in hosting Canada Cup year after year. Our Board, staff and volunteers are pledging to make the 26th Canada Cup
July 2nd - July 11th, 2021
a premier celebration for our sport and to continue being recognized as one of the greatest international softball tournaments in the world!

Please take care and stay safe.
