On Wednesday, the governing body declared that the 2027 World Athletics Championships will take place in Beijing. This marks Beijing’s second time hosting the event, with its previous stint in 2015. Nanjing, another Chinese city, is set to host the upcoming World Athletics Indoor Championships next year. World Athletics president, Sebastian Coe, noted that Beijing was chosen partly due to commercial considerations. He mentioned that the country’s broadcast viewership of the elite Diamond League circuit in 2023 reached an impressive 368.9 million. The most recent edition of the Championships occurred in Budapest in August, and Tokyo is slated to host the event in 2025.

Wang Nan, a Council Member of World Athletics and Vice President of the Chinese Athletics Association, expressed gratitude to the World Athletics Council for entrusting China with the honor of organizing the awaited event. He assured a commitment to delivering a top-notch event. This decision not only acknowledges Beijing’s distinctive position as the first city to host both the Summer and Winter Olympics but also adds prestige with the upcoming event.
