APP World Tour Postpones 2021 Season - Back in 2022
The APP World Tour are disappointed to announce that it has been deemed necessary to postpone the return to competition until February 2022 to protect the legitimacy of the Tour and deliver the best possible product for both Athletes and Partners. Following a string of additional hurdles, from Government decisions to obstacles faced by local organizers and partners as well as the global travel restrictions, it has been deemed preferable to kick off a full season afresh in February of 2022 rather than try to force a shortened and challenging season in 2021.
A good call by the APP as many athletes have been unable to travel to events and this will hopefully ensure greater participation from the World’s best athletes. The Carolina Cup will go ahead as planned in early November as a 2022 season qualifier event.
