A circular from FISA states that Varese :ITA will host the European Olympic qualification regatta from 27 to 29 April 2020

 

based on the rules, countries with 2 quotas or more can't participate in the Continental qualification event. what's the point of hosting the event for Italy when they can't even participate ?! :mumble:

first of all, there are financial reasons...the local organizers get support from both WorldRowing and the Italian Federation and, more than that, they look for fans/tourists to come and spend money...

 

then, it's a prestige question for the local club...

 

finally, Varese is one of the main training centers for the non-European Nations (especially Australia spend always many months a year to train in the Northern Emisphere summer, they have an official base there...and not only for Rowing, but for most summer sports...moreover, the WorldRowing program for developing Nations is based there and the director of that program is an Italian coach -who also coaches Serbia and Lithuania atm), which makes it one of the preferred places to host regatta not only by the Italian federation, but alsoby WorldRowing themselves...
