The upcoming U12 European Championship 2021 will be played from August 10 through August 14. Hosting club is Mortsel Stars from the Antwerp region in Belgium.
This year’s tournament will contain ten participants, divided into two groups. Defending champion Italy will play in Group A. Hosting nation Belgium will play in Group B.
The tournament has a very tight schedule in which seven games per day will be played. Only on the third day of the round robin, six games will be played. The top two finishers of each group will advance to the semi-finals in which the no. one of each group will face the no. two of the other group.
The Mortsel Stars are located at the Southeastern end of the Antwerp Airport. The venue can be reached easily from the Netherlands as it is only a 40 minutes drive from the Dutch/Belgian border at Hazeldonk if you take the A16/E19. From the direction of Eindhoven, it can be reached by the A67/E34.
So a plea to the Dutch baseball fans. Come to support the Dutch U12 team and pay the sympathetic Mortsel Stars a visit. Of course fans of all the other teams are welcome too. The admission is free.
