ITALY WILL START OVER FROM 'A POULE' IN THE BASEBALL EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP

According to the European Federation (CEB) rules, Italy will be in the next European Championship without playing in the 2008 qualifications. The rules state that the top 6 teams of the 2007 'Euros' will play in the next edition of the tournament together with the host country and the 5 teams winning the qualifications.
Russia was supposed to host the 2009 European Championship but declined. The tournament has thus been postponed to 2010 and the 7th place team in Barcelona (i.e. Italy) will take Russia's spot.

Italian Federation President Riccardo Fraccari broke the news during the first meeting og FIBS Board of Directors in Caserta.
Fraccari also explained that he has hopes that italian protest against the position of Great Britain player Brian Ust during the 2007 'Euros' will be accepted.
"We will know more after the meeting in Lausanne scheduled on January 4th".

During the meeting Fraccari will also present his project of a pan european 2009 IBAF World Cup.
In Fraccari's vision the tournament should see 20 teams participating in a preliminary series of games to be played in 5 european countries and then a second half of the tournament to be played in Holland and Italy, with Italy hosting the play offs.
"It would be a great chance of visibility for baseball in Europe weeks before the IOC Congress in Copenhagen" commented FIBS President.
Another of Fraccari's project is a Softball World Cup to be hosted in Italy and Spain in 2010.
