Budapest to Host 2023 World Athletics Championships

2018.12.04.

Budapest will host the World Athletics Championships in 2023, the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) announced on Tuesday in Monaco.

Hungary will host the prestigious event for the first time, 25 years after holding a successful European championship.

IAAF’s board chair, Sebastian Coe, said in July that Budapest would be the “preferred” host in 2023.

The biennial event will be held in Doha, Qatar, in 2019 and in Eugene, Oregon, US, in 2021.
