World Butchers’ Challenge postponed until 2021
The World Butchers’ Challenge (WBC) has been postponed until next year following the ongoing coronavirus/Covid-19 pandemic, with the competition now set to take place between August 13th – 14th 2021.
The competition was set to take place in Sacramento, California in September with 16 nations from all around the world coming together to compete, including England, Wales and Ireland.
Following the postponement, the WBC released a statement which said: “After what can only be described as the most extreme and challenging moments most of us will have seen in our lifetimes, and following a number of discussions with our competitors around the world, I must now report to you the following.
“Yesterday morning, the World Butchers’ Challenge Council met via an international call and the unanimous decision was made to postpone the 2020 World Butchers’ Challenge to August 13-14, 2021. We are filled with the strongest of emotions, not just as we make this announcement but, as we witness our friends from across the globe face a battle none of us could ever have predicted, nor ever imagined. However we know it is the right call.
“We are pleased to announce the new date of August 13-14, 2021, so each and every one of us can look forward to the day in which we will all come together again and celebrate what we will have achieved and grown from.”
