WKF and EKF President Antonio Espinós met with the President of the European Olympic Committees Janez Kocijančič to enhance the cooperation between the two organisations and to analyse the progress of Karate in Europe. 

Mr Kocijančič welcomed Mr Espinós in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Discussions focused on the collaboration between the two organisations and the commitment of the European Karate Federation to EOC’s flagship event.

Karate has been part of the sports programme of both European Games, Baku 2015 and Minsk 2019. Both leaders showed willingness to see the sport at future European Games edition in Krakow & Malopolska 2023.

“We wish to continue the good cooperation with WKF,” Kocijančič stated. “Karate was one of the most popular sports at Minsk 2019, as competitions were first-class and the number of participating athletes very high. Figures on social media showed that the sport was very attractive to the audience.”

“It was a pleasure to sit down with Mr Kocijančič and discuss further opportunities to increase the cooperation of our two organisations. We are proud to be an active partner of EOC, and we are pleased to have contributed to the success of the two editions of the European Games. The last European Games in Minsk were a perfect example of the strength of sporting events in the continent. We hope that we can continue supporting EOC’s goals and to further provide an added value to the development of sports in Europe,” said EKF and WKF President Antonio Espinós. WKF
