MBC 2021 – Mediterranean Bowling Championship

Mediterranean Bowling Championship 2021 at the Escape Factory, Moussy le Neuf, France

The idea of creating the Mediterranean Games came about in 1997 during the European Championship that was being held in Nottingham, England

Mediterranean countries share a lot of history, traditions and culture and a sport event is always an opportunity to enforce good relations. For this reason, Roni Ashkenazi from Israel, Roger Cristofidis from Cyprus, Niko Papadimitriou from Greece, and Julian Pace Bonello from Malta came up with the idea of uniting all Mediterranean federations in one Bowling event.

During the 2015 edition of the Mediterranean Challenge Cup in Greece, the decision was taken change the name to The Mediterranean Bowling Championships or MBC. This decision was taken with intention to formalize many aspects of the event.
