A couple of weeks before the opening of the championship, the President of the Corsican Executive Council Paul Giacobbi has issued a statement on the event, emphasising the importance of organising a European competition in Corsica as well as the growing interest in futnet in the region.
I am delighted that this major event will take place in Corsica, it is a rare honour to be appreciated.
Collectivité Territoriale de Corse, the institutional partner of the biggest sporting events on our island, is particularly pleased to have teamed up with the French Futnet Federation and the Corsican League to offer the first edition of the European Championship of this spectacular sport to the people of Corsica.
I would like to take this opportunity to praise the leaders of the Corsican League for the organisation of the European Championship, but also for their role in the promotion of this sport and their work that has resulted in the two Corsican clubs being among the best ones in the French championship.
I would like to wish a good competition to all the participants.”
