2016 British 4 Nations moves to the Sheffield Ponds Forge
On Thursday 17th December we were informed that Glasgow Council have earmarked the Emirates Arena for the In/Out European Referendum in 2016, with May an outside possibility, and September the more probable month.
The Emirates will not host any sporting events in the lead up to, or immediate post, proceedings, which leaves both the British 4 Nations and British International Open extremely vulnerable as these are our host months.
With 2016 fast approaching and no firm dates on the referendum, the BKF feel the safest option is to transfer the 2016 British 4 Nations to the Sheffield Ponds Forge and create a 5 mat 2 day event, May 28/29th. A bulletin is under construction and will follow shortly.
We sincerely apologise for any disruption this may cause, but trust you understand such matters are out of our control and we hope to see you in Sheffield next May.
