The 2019 IAAF World Athletics Championships (Arabic: [بطولة العالم لألعاب القوى]), the seventeenth edition of the IAAF World Athletics Championships, are scheduled to be held between 27 September and 6 October 2019 in Doha, Qatar at the renovated multi-purpose Khalifa International Stadium.[1] For the first time sponsors of national teams will be permitted to appear on the kit that the athletes compete in.[2][3]

Host selection[edit]

Three cities entered the bidding process to host the event :[4]

The final selection of the host city was carried out on November 18, 2014 in Monaco.[5]

In 2016 the French newspaper Le Monde claimed the selection of the host would have been paid with 3.5 million dollars transferred between October and November 2011 according to the US tax administration, to Papa Massata Diack, the son of Lamine Diack (former president of the IAAF). In 2019, the french prosecutors charged some protagonists for corruption : the head of beIN Sports Yousef Al-Obaidly, the former president of IAAF Lamine Diack, the head of Paris Saint Germain Nasser Al-Khelaifi.

Venue[edit]

Media coverage[edit]

In the United States, NBCUniversal holds rights to the event.[6][7]

Entry standards[edit]

The IAAF announced that athletes would qualify by their world ranking position, wildcard such as reigning champion or winner of the 2019 IAAF Diamond League or by achieving the entry standard.[8][9][10] Following criticism that the qualification method was biased the IAAF reverted to their traditional qualifying method.[11][12] The qualification period for the 10,000 metres, marathon, race walks, relays, and combined events runs from 7 March 2018 to 6 September 2019. For all other events, the qualification period runs from 7 September 2018 to 6 September 2019. Wild Card as:

  • Reigning World Outdoor Champion
  • Winner of the 2019 IAAF Diamond League
  • Leader (as at closing date of the qualification period):
    • IAAF Hammer Throw Challenge
    • IAAF Race Walk Challenge
    • IAAF Combined Events Challenge

Countries who have no male and/or no female athletes who have achieved the Entry Standard or considered as having achieved the Entry Standard (see above) or qualified relay team, may enter one unqualified male athlete OR one unqualified female athlete in one event of the Championships (except the Road Events and Field Events, Combined Events, 10,000m and 3000m Steeplechase).
