The Wanda Diamond League today (24 November) releases a provisional calendar for the 2021 season, which will see a return to a full schedule of 14 meetings culminating in a winner-take-all season finale in Zürich.

Now in its 12th annual cycle, track and field’s premier season-long competition will begin on 23rd May with the Meeting International Mohammed VI in Rabat, Morocco.

The series then heads to the Middle East for the Doha Diamond League, which is scheduled for the 28th of May.

Rome will host the first European meeting of the season on June 4th, before athletes head to Oslo a week later.

Following stops in Stockholm, Monaco, and London in the first two weeks of July, there will be a month-long pause for the Olympic Games in Tokyo.

The series will resume in Shanghai on 14th August, before a continent-spanning double-bill the following weekend. Saturday, August 21st will see the new Hayward Field in Eugene host its first Wanda Diamond League meeting, while Sunday 22nd will host the first edition of a brand new Diamond League meeting in China, details of which are to be announced in due course.

Athletes will return to Europe for the final leg of the season, with meetings in Lausanne, Paris, and Brussels before the season finale in Zürich from September 8th to 9th.

In the first 13 meetings, athletes will earn points in a bid to qualify for a place in the Final, where they have the chance to win the Diamond Trophy and be crowned Wanda Diamond League Champion in their chosen discipline.

The calendar is strictly provisional at this stage and remains subject to changes depending on the global health situation in 2021.

The Wanda Diamond League, World Athletics, and meeting organisers continue to monitor the situation and remain committed to delivering high-quality competitions while prioritising the health and safety of athletes and fans.
