As revealed , EFRA have been forced to change the date for the
A Euros this summer in Auxerre. The NEW date is 17-21st July 2007.
Due to the unexpected competence of the Tour de
France (cycling race) arriving day 11 July nearby Auxerre, exactly to Joigny,
only 28 km apart from Auxerre (http://www.letour.fr), the hotel situation has
become close to a chaos with our expected 500 attendants (drivers, teams,
sponsors, public) nearly without proper allocation.
The Tour request a blocking of hundreds of rooms around each of its arrivals,
and this is a request every applicant for an arrival covers very soon, so that
the hotel situation during that week is a big problem.
Facing that, an unforeseen situation, the French Federation, F.V.R.C, have asked
for a permission to move the race 1 week later, and after deep analysis of the
situation I have decided to authorize such and so that the XXVII European
Championship will be held at the designated Venue (Vaux - Auxerre) from 17 to 21
