EGC goals and the international community

In March EGC will exist 7,5 years. What has been accomplished so far? In 2012 Stavros Sekertzis from Greece came up with the idea to move Stratego towards an Olympic Sport. One year later we helped Greece to connect with the international community. After that EGC focused on Belgium, which has become a flourishing country with tournaments in Flanders and Wallonia. Players visited tournaments in The Netherlands and Belgium in a vivid exchange.

Building an International Stratego Community

In 2019 it looks like that we can make the next step: building a stronger international Stratego Community. During the Team Cup in Breda (The Netherlands) which was held in January, the chairman of the Dutch Federation, mentioned the importance of the International Community for the Dutch.

For example, there participated two German and one Flemish team in the Team Cup this year. In 2018 there was a successful World Championship in Naarden with participants  from 9 countries, as well as the European Team Competition in Brussels, in which participated 12 teams from 5 different countries. There even has been a tournament with 14 players in the United States!

This year there is a lot of support to organise the first international tournament in Switzerland ever in Basel at the end of June. You are all invited! We hope that we can give you more detailed information, soon. Each year we hope to make small steps towards a bigger and stronger International Community.
