Bermuda Teqball President Adams Involved in FITEQ Assembly

The International Federation of Teqball (FITEQ) General Assembly approved the transfer of the governing body's official seat from Lausanne in Switzerland to the Hungarian capital Budapest.

In total, 79 of out the 89 registered National Bodies including Bermuda attended the virtual FITEQ General Assembly.

Bermuda Teqball President Gary Adams represented the local organization.

The transfer of the official seat was approved alongside the inclusion of Hungarian as an official language of FITEQ.

English and French were already official languages.

The FITEQ head office is currently based in Lausanne, the location of the headquarters of the International Olympic Committee and numerous other International Federations.

Teqball was invented in Hungary, however, and the governing body's Presidential office is situated in its capital.

"This is very important that the sport of Teqball, born in Hungary, can move back," said FITEQ chairman Viktor Huszár.

"There are a lot of benefits in Hungary that we can enjoy."

The General Assembly also approved an update to the FITEQ Statutes to ensure they are aligned with Hungarian law.

In addition, the adoption of sport-related policies regarding the transfer of athletes, minimum age requirements, prize money, safeguarding, ethics, anti-corruption and anti-doping were approved.

Reports were heard from FITEQ general secretary Marius Vizer Jr, head of diplomatic relations and corporate social responsibility Gergely Murányi, and digital engagement and marketing head Artur Papizsanszkij.

The general secretary urged member federations to become more active and utilize the resources offered by the FITEQ.
