The WKF just announced that the Karate 1 Premier League of Lisbon, initially scheduled on February 19th-21st, is postponed due to the situation generated by the Covid-19 pandemic. It does not count with the minimum guarantees for its celebration on the dates foreseen. The new dates would be from April 30th to May 2nd 2021. The season should therefore start in mid-March. But it will not be in Baku, because of the increasing restrictions imposed by the Azerbaijanese government. Istanbul is expected to host the 1st Karate 1 - Premier League event of the year from March 12-14.
