Athletes will be expected to accept selection by following the link in a selection email (which will be sent to them week starting 7th May) by 17/5/2019. They should then log into the BF platform, click on the event and follow the entry process to make payment.
The payment is expected to be approximately £430 which will include 6 nights (twin room accommodation) and individual entry fees. The per athlete entry fee as set by the competition is 130 euros: 60 euros ‘Entry Fee Individual’ plus 70 euros per athlete ‘Referee Fee’ (see page 6 of the invitation letter above). Based on the current number of athletes the B&B cost per person per night ranges from 45-50euros. BF will need to pay collection fees, card transaction and currency conversion fees hence the initial charge of £50 per person per night. If those charges are less athletes will be refunded. Please note that BF are not charging the athletes for any administration.
Sport:80 is not providing any travel services (and there are therefore no associated travel service fees), athletes must arrange all their own travel.
Please check back to this page regularly for information updates.
