Corwen Trophy

5th – 6th June 2021

Due to the current situation, this event will take place online in 2021.

Please note: We intend this event to go ahead, whether online or live, and we will allow all counties one extra qualification space so that they can enter the winners of last year’s qualifier if they wish, even if they do not qualify again.

Entry is open to the leading pairs in the current pairs championship of each County Association of the EBU. The number of pairs permitted from each County depends on the number of members (including Junior and Bridge for All members) notified to the EBU by 31st March 2021 i.e. a number of shareholder votes plus one.

Each County may offer substitutes for any of its qualified pairs unable to compete, and these will be called in on a next-in-line basis; only substitutes who have scored in excess of 50% including any carry-forward in the County Championship Final will be eligible in this respect. For further eligibility regulations, see the information on County Allegiance.

Event Programme (Provisional)

To enter

Entry is open to the leading pairs in the current pairs championship of each County Association of the EBU.

County Secretaries will be provided with an entry form by EBU staff at a suitable time ahead of the event.

Congress Prices

The prices for this congress are significantly lower than they would have been face to face, but reflect the fact that green-pointed events always attract a premium. 

We have been working hard to keep bridge going over the last year, but even with an end in sight we still need to work hard to keep the EBU going. Despite taking advantage of all government support that has been available, making a number of staff redundant and cutting costs everywhere we can, we have still needed to use our reserves and expect to do so more in the coming year when the government support is no longer available.

Competitions are one way of raising the money necessary for the EBU's survival and we will be following this pricing strategy for all our online congresses and major competitions.
