It is with great sadness that we have decided to cancel The Biggest Online Bridge Tournament which started this morning.
The date of 12 December was expected to be a day of celebration for the Funbridge team and its community of players. This tournament has set records for the number of participants on the app!
Unfortunately, as you may have noticed today, it has been a victim of its own success.
Great care has been taken ahead of the tournament to make sure a large number of players can log in simultaneously. The Funbridge team has worked hard ahead of the tournament for it to take place in the best possible conditions. But this is not what you have experienced today.
We had promised to offer 1 Diamond to each participant per 1,000 players registered for the tournament on Funbridge. You were nearly 15,000 registered players this morning. We will honour our promise. Each registered player will receive 20 Diamonds (15 Diamonds plus 5 extra Diamonds) on his/her account in the next few days, allowing him/her to play one Funbridge Points tournament.
Rest assured that the whole Funbridge team is greatly affected by this situation. This event has been imagined and prepared for weeks. Expectations were high today.
But there will be another time. We will be working flat out to offer you a big tournament that will keep its promises this time.
Olivier Comte, President of Funbridge
