Performance Cheer Doubles

All performance cheer doubles will compete on Friday morning in a separate event, same venue. There will be no finals.

All national team managers be advised that the last ECU general assembly decided to accept only one cheer doubles team per country at the 2019 ECU Europeans.

Visa procedure

Many participating teams will need to apply for visas in order to travel to Russia.

Visa procedures vary from country to country, so we cannot provide you with general guidelines that would apply to all.

It is crucial to verify with Russian embassies in your country for accurate information as to what applies for you, your staff and athletes.

The Russian Cheer Union, in cooperation with Russian authorities, vows to send a letter of invitation to the Russian embassies in each country approximately 3 months before the ECU Europeans, that is end March 2019.

The information about the letter will be transmitted to all ECU members as soon as it will be sent out, so teams can start applying for visas.


Travel packages

Accommodation packages for teams will be offered to the teams shortly.
