Following the announcement from the French President Emmanuel Macron on October 14, 2020 to put in place a curfew in the Grenoble area and in consultation with the City of Grenoble, the FFSG made the difficult decision to cancel the event. They closely monitored the health authorities position on COVID-19 but given the evolution of the health crisis and their prudence for the health and safety of the athletes, coaches, officials, and volunteers, the appropriate course of action was for the FFSG to cancel the event.
The ISU regrets that the hosting of the ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating – Internationaux de France is no longer viable and thanks the FFSG for their continued effort and support.
Following a decision of the ISU Council due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and travel restrictions, the ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating events are primarily domestically run events with domestic Skaters and Skaters who train in the host country or respective geographical region.
