IFSC Postpones Championships and World Cups

The International Federation of Sport Climbing, together with the IFSC Continental Councils and in agreement with the
National Federations and the Local Organising Committees of the competitions affected by the outbreak of the COVID-19
coronavirus, announced some strategic decisions concerning the calendar of the upcoming months.

Specifically, it has been decided to:

  • Postpone the IFSC European Championships in Moscow (RUS), initially scheduled to take place from March 20
    to 27; the competition is now scheduled from June 15 to 22
  • Postpone the IFSC World Cup in Meiringen (SUI), initially scheduled to take place from April 3 to 4, and the IFSC
    World Cup in Seoul (KOR), initially scheduled to take place from May 8 to 10; both competitions will likely be held
    between September and October
  • Postpone the circuit of IFSC Europe cups and IFSC Europe youth cups that were scheduled to take place in April
    and May; the IFSC Europe Sport Department is working closely with each event organiser in order to establish a
    new calendar for the competitions affected by this issue

    Chongqing (CHN) in April
  • To postpone and relocate the IFSC Asian Championships initially scheduled to take place in Chongqing (CHN)
    from April 25 to May 3

Any further development will be communicated in due time, said the groups.
