EKC 2020

The 3rd European Kubb Championships

We are proud to announce that the third edition of the European Kubb Championships will be held on the 3rd and 4th of July 2020 in Wismar, Germany. The tournament includes the 1vs1-EKC, the 3vs3-EKC, the 6vs6-EKC and the EKC Freshman’s Cup – a 3vs3 tournament for amateurs and less ambitious teams.

The goal of the EKC is the support of the national spirit of every Kubb nation. Therefore the teams and players won’t just fight for themselves – they will earn points for their nation, trying to win the overall medal count and therefore win the EKC as the best European nation of Kubb!

TIMETABLE

two days full of HIGH QUALITY kubb

The official start of the EKC’20 will take place with a reception in behalf of the mayor in the city hall of Wismar on Wednesday (July, 1st) and an opening ceremony in the Bürgerpark on Thursday (July, 2nd).
The tournament will start on Friday morning (July, 3rd). We would really appreciate, if many Kubb friends will take part on Wednesday and look forward to a great time in Wismar.

*Note that some changes to the schedule may be possible. 

LOCATION

wismar – the place to play Kubb

Wismar City
Wismar City Harbor

Wismar is located in the northeast of Germany at the Baltic Sea with almost 43,000 residents. It is a Hanseatic city and has the second largest port of the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. As UNESCO world heritage site, Wismar has an impressive historical city center with several touristic sights: The market square with magnificent facades,the ‘Wismarer Wasserkunst’, a cultural landmark, as well as the old harbor. The skyline is dominated by medieval brick churches St. Georgen, St. Marien and St, Nikolai. Many namings in Wismar derive from the time of Swedish possession between 1648 and 1803. Every year, a Swedish Festival takes place in the center of the old town including many sports highlights e.g. running and Kubb. The Kubb tournament is one the most established activities during the festival since 10 years. The mayor of Wismar, Thomas Beyer, who traditionally  opens the festival, included Kubb on his election-posters in 2018. Thus, the participants of the EKC’20 can look forward to a kubbanized city.

Moreover, the Hanseatic town will celebrate its 800-anniversary in 2026 with many cultural events and activities (e.g. Wonnemar, Tierpark Mumpitz, Phantechnikum). Cafés, pubs and restaurants invite you for a relaxing and joyful time in the historical town. Watch the video portrait of the city here.

If you are interested in a city tour through the beautiful old town of Wismar or a boat cruise on the Poeler Kogge, please contact us by e-mail.

bürgerpark wismar

The third EKC takes place in the Bürgerpark Wismar (Zum Festplatz 4, 23966 Wismar). The park was created in 1903. In 2002 the park was renewed for the 1. Landesgartenschau from Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Today, the park attracts people for different leisure time activities with an animal park next to it. The city centre and the old harbour are only a few minutes away by car, 10 minutes by bike and 25 minutes walking, as everything is so close in Wismar.

The park is dominated by a tower with a viewing platform, 28 m above the ground. The platform offers a unique view across the bay around Wismar. A 2.5 km long loop guides the visitor across the wide spaced park with Japanese cherry trees surrounding the paradise garden and the centre court for the finals of the EKC’20. A unique scenery for Kubbplayers and spectators. Almost 100 Kubb pitches will be set up next to the garden beneath the viewing platform.

Food, drinks as well as toilets will be located next to the event location within the Bürgerpark. Camping is not permitted in the park. Therefore, we provide a list with several options for accommodation (see links below). And as said, routes are short in Wismar.

registration information

Registration fees: 10.– € per player for the 1vs1-EKC and 30.– € per team for the 3vs3-EKC and the EKC Freshman’s Cup. The fees have to be paid before the tournament. Either with a money transfer in advance until the 22.06.2020 or at the information desk before the tournaments begin. 

Registration limits*: To ensure that every country gets a fair chance to be part of the EKC and to have a great diversity of participating nations, the following rule was set at the general assembly of the EKA in 2019. This rule applies to the 1vs1 EKC and the 3vs3 EKC. In the first phase of registration (4 weeks) there is a maximum limit of allowed registrations per country:

Hosting country: 30%
All other countries: 10%

The national associations have the right to provide a list with registered players/teams of their country before the first phase of registration starts. After reaching the limit, additional players/teams are put on the waiting list. After 4 weeks, the waiting list is merged into the registration list. Free spots will be filled up in order of registration, with different countries taking turn. Phase 2 of the registration will start on 13th of February, 19:00 CET

The Freshmans Cup doesn’t have registration limits per country.

Total number of available spots for EKC20:
1vs1 EKC: 240
3vs3 EKC: 120
Freshmans Cup: 60

Note: Belgium will be doing a qualification tournament for the 1vs1 EKC in April, until then there will be a set of Belgian “dummy” names in the registration list.If you are a player from Belgium, you cannot register yourself for the 1vs1 EKC. Please contact the Belgian Kubb Federation for details. But you can (and should) register for the 3vs3 EKC, of course.

*Why do we set limits of registration to the tournaments? Because we attach the greatest value to an attractive and well-balanced tournament mode and process: Short waiting times, long playing times, less tie-breaks and as much fun as possible for everyone.
