What if Fabrice Pastor succeeded in America where he had failed in Europe? If MCIS went through America to reach its goal forever: "A professional circuit worthy of the name"? This man "trahi and disappointed"Who did not want to"nothing more to do with the padel", did he review his position? Did he say no to a professional circuit? We will try to answer it.

Launch of a big competition

Fabrice Pastor is launching a major competition in North America. The objective is to make it a circuit dedicated to very good players of padel / Professionals. As we know, professional players don't really have a choice: They cannot participate in several circuits. And the majority of the World Padel Tour have renewed for 5 years with the official professional circuit during the second half of 2018.

But MCIS did not say goodbye to the padel. On the contrary, the Monegasque entrepreneur has left to rebuild his health in North America. He recently became the first President of Continental American Padel Federation. A structure that will be needed in the future since it already includes the 3 main federations of the zone: Mexico, the USA and Canada.


Direction America

The other point: This is the elite circuit that wants to set up Fabrice Pastor. His ambitions seem to be important. Since in Europe, we did not want him, it is in North America that the Phoenix could be reborn from the ashes.

Remember, around the month of September, we remember a particularly disappointed man, who had seen his project of theInternational Padel Tour take the water. A disappointment that had been great for Monsieur Pastor. To the point of wanting to give up "definitely the padel". But we do not turn our backs on a passion. And if we can be for or against the projects of Monte Carlo International Sports, we can never say that its President is not a fan of the sport.

Fabrice Pastor: "Disappointed by and for the players"

Which options?

Here is Fabrice Pastor dancing again on the other side of the Atlantic. A position that could develop since the region sees the padel become more and more important, just like in Europe. We can see several options in the long term for Fabrice Pastor:

First, if the World Padel Tour wants to venture into North America, the current professional circuit will have to keep a low profile in view of the very stormy past between the MCIS and the WPT. Because it is certain that Fabrice Pastor will not want a second failure because of the WPT.

Then, via the CAPF, Fabrice Pastor wishes to want to make a very large circuit which would be launched in 2020. The first stage has already taken place and others will follow. This is an implementation of a circuit that could well approach a professional circuit. If the organization of the CAPF is now supposed to be a North American organization, there is nothing to say that this organization could not expand. “The door is not closed"We are told. All is said.
