In a recent exclusive interview with JitsMag, Mo Jassim admitted that, while he’s confident the worlds will proceed as planned, it’s not impossible that the ADCC World Championships could be pushed to a later date. This revelation came in the wake of the news that the European, Middle-Eastern and African Trials event for ADCC 2021 being delayed by just over two months and instead taking place in December.
Mo Jassim –”To be honest, the challenge right now is that if we have to delay the trials, and do it all in 2021 that’s gonna be a challenge to get it all done before the worlds. So it is possible. Personally I think it’s going to be ok by then, more than a year away.”
As Jassim pointed out, there’s still plenty of time to play with before the final brackets for the ADCC World Championships 2021 need to be drawn up. That being said, the coming months will no doubt prove pivotal in the build-up to the finals as three trials events are scheduled to take place before the end of 2020. Realistically, this is where all of the focus is at ADCC head offices right now:
Mo Jassim – “My biggest concern is the trials. I’m not really too worried about the worlds. But trying to cram all eight trials in a short period of time is going to be a challenge. But we’ll manage and make sure it’s the best possible outcome for everybody.”
