The World Snooker Federation (WSF) received unanimous support for constitutional changes at its latest General Assembly held online on Friday 18 December 2020.
The meeting was attended by delegates from across the globe including the European, Asia-Pacific, Americas and African regions, who were all formally welcomed by WSF President Jason Ferguson.
Alongside the approval of the WSF independently audited accounts, matters to be ratified included proposed changes to the WSF constitution aimed at streamlining formalities and giving the organisation greater flexibility as it continues to grow. Agreement was also sought on the proposed change of registered office from its existing office in Geneva to Lausanne close to the home of the International Olympic Committee.
All of these matters received unanimous approval from those present.
Ferguson said: “It is truly a pleasure to be able to meet with representatives of our many members around the world who share our vision to grow our wonderful sport from grassroots to professional level.”
“It has of course been a challenging year for us all and the impact of the coronavirus pandemic has clearly been felt by amateur snooker, both at national and international level. However, I remain greatly optimistic that the future of our sport remains bright and that the decisions taken today will only help us expand further as we emerge from Covid-19 to help aspiring new players to achieve their dreams.”
“Communication and building trusting relationships around the world is key to the future and I would like to thank delegates who attended today and registered their vote of confidence to snooker’s International Federation.”
