Nationality of Athletes

Paragraph 2. of the ECU European Cheerleading Championships Competition Rulebook requires that all athletes that represent ECU member from the specific country must have citizenship or permanent residency for at least 6 months in that respected country at the time of the respective ECU European Cheerleading Championships. 

Identity, age and permanent residency of the athlete will be determined by inspection of the valid photo ID document and supporting documents that need to include the following information:

  • name and surname,
  • date of birth,
  • photo,
  • citizenship or proof for the duration of residency. 

If you have athletes competing on a team that are not nationals of your country, we advise you to send in the information as required above for a pre-check to rules@europeancheerunion.com.

This is a voluntary service, but it will help to speed up the process of checking in your athletes at Europeans.

 

Visa Procedures

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.
Most recent updates about the visa procedures can be found on the event website.
