At the annual Congress, WBSC Europe decided to establish an advisory group to discuss about the eligibility of players.
The group will have time to find an agreement until 2020 fall.
The eligibility of players has been made a subject of conversation for many years. Due to all kind of different developments, sportive, technical and economic there is a wide wish to evaluate the way we are handling this subject at this moment. At the 2020 congress there has been a good discussion which also shows the different perspectives on this subject. That is a good starting point to thoroughly evaluate and come up with an advice to the WBSC Europe board in how to move forward.
In order to make the group effective and efficient the group cannot be too big. It needs to be a balanced coverage of community within baseball and softball, best, middle and lowest ranking countries, from eastern and western Europe.
When we have to many volunteers on this subject we make an selection based on above
An advice how to move on forward with the different aspects of eligibility of players to the WBSC Europe board. Based on a thorough research and look upon different aspects and perspectives.
