The 2022 World Athletics Championships, the eighteenth version of the World Athletics Championships, are booked to be held in 2022 in Eugene, Oregon, United States. Initially booked to be held from August 6–15, 2021, after the delay of the 2020 Summer Olympics, World Athletics raised the chance of changing the date of the 2021 Championships, including the chance of moving into 2022. On April 8, 2020, the World Athletics Championships declared that the occasion would occur from July 15–24, 2022.
|Dates||15–24 July 2022|
|Officially opened by||President of the United States (expected)|
The determination of the host city was reported on April 16, 2015 in Beijing. Eugene was chosen without a customary offering process, however Eugene put in an offer for the 2019 World Championships, losing to Qatar.
Sprinter’s World magazine revealed that Eugene’s determination by World Athletics, at that point known as the International Association of Athletics Federations, was an “unordinary move”. They report the Association “skirted the typical offering process,” and that the decision of Eugene will make the 2021 occasion “the main held in the United States.” The occasion will be the second held in North America, after Edmonton, Canada in 2001.
The Guardian reported that the absence of offering activated worry in European urban communities that had offered to have the event. They quoted Lamine Diack, IAAF president, who legitimized the absence of offering with the case the determination of Eugene to have the occasion, “empowers us to make the most of an extraordinary chance to have a monetarily effective competition that may never emerge again.” The absence of offering for the 2021 occasion was not uncommon. The 2007 World Championship was granted to Osaka, Japan, without offering.
The titles will be held in the Hayward Field, at the University of Oregon in Eugene, Oregon, which is right now experiencing re-development and will have a limit of 30,000.
