It is official:
The Skat World Championship is coming to Canada in 2020. The ISPA leadership team has decided that next year's World Championship will take place in Edmonton, Alberta from October 6 to 14, 2020 at the Chateau Lacombe Hotel in Edmonton. A lot of work has gone into this decision, which was not made lightly.
Not all details are available at this time, but the date and location are identified and confirmed. As more information becomes available, we will share it here.
The Chateau Lacombe Hotel is located downtown Edmonton, close to the North Saskatchewan River Valley. As a slick high-rise hotel, it offers spectacular panoramic views of the river valley, especially when visiting its rooftop revolving restaurant, the only of its kind in Edmonton.
