A religious celebration/holy day should have absolutely no bearing on when the ETC is held.

Please keep fantasy/"make believe" to the games we play, not to matters that can influence when we play.

versuscorp - unfortunately the dates have been set while ago and I believe a captain's vote was done to agree on the dates.

REPLY
I am afraid this was very much part of the bid for the event, you missed the opportunity to raise this problem when the bids were submitted.

Looking forward to 2020 I believe the relevant date moves forward about 11 days from 11 August to 31 July so if a bid for the ETC is proposing an early date you should raise the issue with the bidder/wider community.

I am not religious myself so if I have got the dates wrong please feel free to correct me.

I understand the date moves approx 11 days forward each year so this will not have been a problem before and if 2020 is not a problem for you then it is unlikely to be a problem in the foreseeable future.

Whilst this will not be an issue for most of the players as the Muslim Religion is in the minority in Europe I would prefer to see the event as inclusive as possible and hope the 2020 bidders will try to avoid an awkward date, albeit availability of venues is not always that flexible.
