The 2020 BET VICTOR Weber Cup takes place this week, between 19th and 21st October 2020.
“The BetVictor Weber Cup returns to England as Chris Barnes’ USA side aim to make it three in a row after they defended the title against Europe in Las Vegas in 2019.
Ricoh Arena, Coventry plays host for the first time and Dom Barrett’s European team will be hoping the famous European Weber Cup support can help spur their side to glory.” – http://webercup.com
A total prize fund of $75,000 is up for grabs, with the victors getting $10,000 per person (around £7,600), whilst the runners-up will settle for $5,000 each (about £3,800).
2020 is a year dominated world-wide by the COVID-19 / Coronavirus pandemic, and strict methods have been employed prior to players arriving, upon arrive; and during competition.
“..Players, officials and staff were throat and nasal swab tested on arrival at the event.” and we can of course be sure that Europe will wish that the discomfort of the swabs stays with the USA bowlers during the event! (only kidding guys!)
