PLANT CITY, Florida, USA, International Softball Federation (ISF) President Don Porter will be hosting a short press conference during the Junior Women’s World Championship in Enschede, Netherlands, to reveal the campaign blueprint and identity for the re-instatement of Softball onto the Olympic Programme for the Games of the XXXI Olympiad.

The press conference will be held next Wednesday, June 27.

The ISF says "the significant announcement will initiate a two-year campaign that will culminate in the 121st IOC Session in 2009 when the members of the International Olympic Committee vote on which sports will be on the Olympic Programme for the Olympic Games in 2016".

Media wishing to attend the conference are advised that a coffee reception will kick off the proceedings at 10:30 am next Wednesday in the Clubhouse of Sparta, 200 meters away from the ballpark currently hosting the ISF’s VIII Jr. Women’s World Championship (19-and-under).

ADDRESS:  cvv Sparta Enschede, sportpark Schreurserve, Kotkampweg 44, 7531 AT, Enschede, Netherlands

Softball has been on the Olympic Programme since 1996 but was voted off the Olympic Programme for the Games of the XXX Olympiad in 2012.   It is believed that Softball is the first sport to announce a formal campaign in such a way for 2016.
