Open European Bridge Championship in Opatija Announced

Total Croatia News

European Bridge League and Croatian Bridge Federation will organize the Open European Bridge Championship in Opatija, 15-29 of June 2019.

Championships in bridge can be national or open: former are for the national teams, while for the open championships anyone in the world can signup and play, if they think they’re good enough.

Iva Mrkić, one of the organizers from the Croatian Bridge Federation told us that 1500 players coming from five continents are expected in Opatija next year. Partially to prepare for that demanding task, in July this year the 14th European Youth Pairs Championships will be organized in Opatija as well. Croatia and Opatija have already proven that they are great organizers for the large bridge events, as the National European Championship was held there in 2014, as well as Champions Cup (once in Opatija and once in Zagreb).

The tournament itself will be held in two wonderful halls, Marino Cvetković sports hall and Gervais Centre, and 1500 participants (and some members of their families) will get to stay in various hotels in Opatija and enjoy the town in June.
