Madrid, October 13th, 2020
The Fédération Cynologique Internationale ( FCI), IFEMA and the RealSociedad Canina de España ( RSCE), organisers of the FCI World Dog Show 2020, which was going to be heldin Feria de Madrid from December 17th to December 20th, further to several postponements of its original dates in April and then July, have decided to postpone this worldwide canine event to 2022, due to the situation created by Covid-19. IFEMA had taken a whole set of measures and protocols in order to ensure the participation in the Dog Show under fully guaranteed safety conditions.
However, the evolution of the pandemic and the various sanitary conditions at international level make it advisable to postpone the event, in order to answer the high expectations and the anticipation a worldwide event of such importance had generated for companies, exhibitors and enthusiasts from all over the world.
The FCI and the RSCE would like to express their gratitude to the generosity, the solidarity and the cooperation of Brazil -through their national canine organisation, CBCK- which being conscious of the seriousness and the peculiarity of the current situation, as well as of RSCE’s efforts to guarantee the celebration of the FCI World Dog Show, has agreed to hold two World Dog Shows in 2022: the FCI World Dog Show in Spain and the FCI World Dog Show in Brazil (where the coveted and exclusive 2020 and 2022 “FCI World Winner” titles will be respectively awarded).
This way, 2022 will be a paradigmatic year, a model of the values and ideals of friendship, solidarity, cooperation and respect on which the FCI is based.
The RSCE and the CBKC are grateful for the predisposition and the support of the FCI General Committee,especially of the FCI’s President, to a good outcome of the proper negotiations.In the next few days, the RSCE will inform further about the final dates and about all the changes relatedto this new situation.
