Een interssant nieuw evenement gaat nog dit jaar worden gelanceerd door de European Pool Billiards Federation (EPBF): het PoolStars Online Europees Kampioenschap 8-ball.
Vanaf 1 juni is registratie mogelijk, op 25 oktober is de online finale gepland.
De EPBF over dit bijzondere initiatief: "During this Covid-19 crisis we also see quit a few new initiatives in different areas. People are getting creative in these difficult and uncertain times. We were contacted by a company called PoolStars who are situated in Spain. This company did ask our co-operation to host the first online European Championship Pool billiard. They already did have some experience because they did host already the Spanish Championship 8-Ball in 2019."
"After a few video conferences and discussions, the EPBF board decided to give this new initiative a try and we did sign a contract with them. This means that soon there will be the first Online European Championship 8-Ball in the history of the EPBF."
