Tonči Radelja Memorial - BBO InterCity League

BBO InterCity League

Welcome to the Tonci Radelja Memorial - InterCity league - Schedule and Results site - Edition 38: Autumn 2022

The InterCity league is a competition for teams on BridgeBase Online, and it was founded by Tonci Radelja. It has been played twice every year since 2003 and each team represents a city, town or village. The competition is played in two stages: a group stage, followed by a knock-out stage.

Sadly, Tonci passed away on November 14 2013, after a long illness. We will remember him for the enthusiasm and friendliness with which he organized the league. Until his final days he was involved, and he personally made sure everybody enjoyed the competition. We will continue to run the InterCity league in his memory.

RIP cobRAD...

Edition 37 ran in the spring of 2022. The final was played on the 1st of June between Foca from Turkey and Bucharest Seniors from Romania, with Foca winning by 13 imps. The Foca team were: Mehmet Ali Kordov, Eser Pekoz, Rauf Temizel, Vedat Gonul and Nevzat Pekoz.

Edition 38 will start on Wednesday the 21st of September 2022 with the group stage. There will be 8 groups and the top 4 of each group will advance to the knock-out stage. Contact Willem (willemm in BBO - wmevius@hotmail.com) if you still want to enter a team.

Unfortunately Russian teams had to be excluded from this edition, to show our support for our Ukrainian friends. The regular team from Kiev could not join either because of the war. Hopefully this will be resolved for future editions, as the InterCity league was set up by Tonci to bring people together.


----
