The online meeting of the European Olympic Committees

The Executive Committee of the European Olympic Committees (EOC) held its second meeting of 2020 on 29 April via teleconference to discuss a number of important matters, in particular the impact on sport from the COVID-19 pandemic and measures to deal with the fallout. Chaired by EOC President Janez Kocijančič, the meeting focused primarily on the current state of sport in Europe and ways to assist the 50 European National Olympic Committees (ENOCs).

The EOC recently surveyed the 50 NOCs of Europe to get a clearer idea of how COVID-19 was affecting their operations and athletes. The response rate was high, with 45 of the 50 ENOCs taking part. As expected, operations and finances at the participating NOCs have taken a serious blow, while access for elite athletes to training facilities has been severely impeded.
