Dear Media Representatives,
In view of today’s decision by the government to prohibit spectators to visit the FIS Ski Flying World Championships in Planica, we announce that we will fully comply with the measure. In the following days all tickets holders will be notified about the procedures. According to initial estimates, the event will have a loss of 650.000 EUR. Due to the damage caused, the development of ski sport in Slovenia will certainly suffer, since the funds raised in Planica are in its entirety intended for athletes, therefore that will not be possible without the help of all stakeholders. In the next days we will start to implement the plan we were preparing for in the case the competition had to be carried out without spectators. We will keep the public regularly informed of all the details. We ask all fans of ski sports for a lot of understanding and patience, as we have a lot of work to do in the following days.
