FIRST Cancels 2021 Championships in Houston and Detroit
These past few months, FIRST has continued to evaluate the scale and viability of hosting 2021 FIRST Championship events that meet health, safety, and international travel guidelines. Due to conditions created by the ongoing pandemic, FIRST is unable to host the events as planned and has made the decision to cancel the 2021 FIRST Championship events in Houston and Detroit. FIRST shares in the deep disappointment that we will not be gathering as a global community in person this season. However, the safety of the community is FIRST's overarching priority.
