Kashima National Body Requested a one-year postponement if not possible to hold Kagoshima May 23 at 12:44
In an interview with officials, it was revealed in interviews with officials that Kagoshima Prefecture is requesting a proposal to postpone the event for the person with disabilities for up to a year if it is difficult to hold the “Kashima National Body” and the national sports tournament in October, which are being considered whether or not to be held under the influence of the new coronavirus.
The “Kashima National Body”, scheduled for October, and the National Sports Tournament for the Disabled, are being held in kagoshima prefecture, the Japan Sports Association, the Japan Sports Association for the Disabled, and the Sports Agency, from the viewpoint of ensuring the safety of athletes due to the spread of the new coronavirus infection.
On March 20, Kagoshima Prefecture’s governor, Sanantien, said, “We agree that it may be difficult to hold the “Kashima National Body” in a safe manner this month, and that it is becoming difficult to hold the event as originally planned.
Against this, kagoshima prefecture has requested a proposal to postpone the event for up to one year if it is difficult to hold the event in October, according to interviews with officials.
In order to hold the national body, the prefecture is preparing to invest 100 million yen in the year to date and 100 million yen for this fiscal year, but the delay is expected to be even more expensive.
In addition, next year’s event will be held in Mie Prefecture, and next year will be decided with Tochigi Prefecture, so it is expected that it will be difficult to coordinate with other prefectures. Four parties, such as Kagoshima Prefecture, will indicate whether or not the event will be held in early next month.
