In view of the continuing uncertainties brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic which has put most countries in the world under lockdown, prohibition on mass gatherings, quarantine protocols and travel restrictions, the following competitions scheduled for the third quarter of 2020 will be cancelled:
1. All the scheduled competitions under the Asian Cadet Circuit for season 2020-2021. In the calendar, the affected Cadet Circuit competitions starting in July until September are in the Philippines, Singapore, China, Taiwan, Japan, Jordan, Malaysia and Kuwait.
2. The 2020 Asian Veterans Fencing Championships scheduled in Hong Kong this September. Upon request of the Hong Kong Fencing Association, the FCA agreed to cancel this event, which would have seen the participation of veteran fencers (considered as the most vulnerable sector of society). Nonetheless, the HKFA has signified their willingness to organize the AVFC in 2021, should the health situation permit.
