Due to the growing number of countries affected by the COVID-19 virus, the first three meetings of the 2020 Wanda Diamond League season, scheduled for 17th April in Qatar, 9th and 16th May 2020 in China, cannot be held as planned. This decision was made in close consultation with organising committees, local authorities and sports governing bodies.
New dates for Doha and the second meeting in China remain to be announced. It could be that they will be held after the Wanda Diamond League Final in Zurich from 9th through 11th September, where the Diamond League Champions will be crowned, should the global situation allow.
It is forbidden to enter Qatar from a number of countries and the government in Doha has suspended all national and international events for a period of 30 days.
When the new dates are announced, don’t miss out on the opportunity to cheer on Team Qatar at the Wanda Diamond League series. Watch the world’s best athletes at Qatar Sports Club and Katara Amphitheatre.
