At the beginning of September, the FMBB committee announced that the event, which was actually planned in Romania, will not take place at the intended location. Reasons for the exact cancellation were not mentioned. In Romania, they still hope to host the event instead in 2022. Immediately after the cancellation, discussions were held with three other nations that could jump in shortly. One of them was France, who agreed to resubmit the event. Also the venue will remain the same as in 2016 with Aubigny Sur Nère. The date of the week is 11 May to 17 May.
