The Baseball Federation of Asia (BFA) Executive Board has confirmed the Chinese Taipei Baseball Association will host the Asian Baseball Championships in December.
The continental body confirmed the location for the event at their latest virtual meeting, which included World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) President Riccardo Fraccari among its participants.
The Asian Baseball Championship is typically held every two years.
Chinese Taipei has hosted the past four editions of the Asian Baseball Championships, including the 2019 edition which was won by the host nation.
Fraccari praised the contribution of the Chinese Taipei Baseball Association at the meeting.
He thanked the Chinese Taipei Baseball Association and the Chinese Professional Baseball League for agreeing to host the final Olympic qualifier for Tokyo 2020.
Next year’s WBSC Congress is also due to take place in Taiwan.
During a speech Fraccari highlighted the important role of Asia in international baseball and the importance of the sport being included as part of the recently announced Olympic Virtual Series.
The BFA announced during the meeting that it would wait for two more weeks before making a final decision on the West Asia Baseball Cup.
The event is currently scheduled for July in Iran, and the Iran Baseball Federation has reconfirmed its availability to host the event, the BFA reported.
The BFA is expected to decide whether the event will be postponed again or cancelled.
Several events have already been postponed.
This includes the Under-15 Asian Baseball Championships in China, which will be moved from August to either December 2021 or January 2022.
The Women's Asian Baseball Championship and the inaugural University Asian Baseball Championship have both been moved to 2022.
