World Archery announces provisional dates, venues for 2021 World Cup stages and World Championships

The World Archery has announced provisional dates and venues for the 2021 World Cup stages and for the World Championships.

The World Championships will be held in Yankton, USA from 19 to 26 September, while the World Cup stages will start on 19 April in Guatemala City, the sport’s global governing body announced on Monday.

The other two stages of the World Cup will be held in Shanghai and Paris from 17 to 23 May and 22 to 27 June respectively.

The final is slated for September-October next year. Seasons that run in the same year as Olympic Games are traditionally shortened from four to three stages.

“The final qualification tournament for Tokyo was initially scheduled to be held in Berlin in June 2020,” World Archery said in a release. “However, following the one-year delay of the Games, it has been replaced by Paris. It will be held as a standalone event, immediately before the World Cup stage, on 18-21 June.”

The World Archery Youth Championships will be held in Perth from 11 to 17 October. The 2020 circuit was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
