The 2020 European Sambo Championships, scheduled to take place November 27-29 in Yekaterinburg, Russia, have been canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. European and All-Russian Sambo Federations President Sergei Eliseev cited the worsening situation around the world and particularly in Russia where there were nearly 16000 new cases of coronavirus reported on Monday.

Yekaterinburg may instead receive the rights to the 2022 European Championships or even the 2021 tournament. The 2021 championships are scheduled for Italy but at the moment it's unclear whether they will be able to host the event.
