The seventeenth edition of the IAAF World Championships is scheduled to be held between 27 September and 6 October 2019 in Doha, Qatar at the renovated multi-purpose Khalifa International Stadium.
Doha overcame bids from Eugene, USA, and Barcelona, Spain to be granted the rights to host the 2019 IAAF World Championships in Athletics. Having hosted the IAAF Diamond League, formerly the Super Grand Prix, since 1997 and the 2010 IAAF World Indoor Championships, the organisers will combine their experience, world-class facilities and sporting innovation to connect the world of athletics to an untapped market in a brand new region. The World Championships will be held in the Khalifa International Stadium, which is currently being upgraded to make it the most state-of-the-art purpose-built athletics stadium in the world. A highlight of the revamped stadium will be a world-first 100 meter long video wall-screen that will revolutionize spectator viewing.
