Biathlon World Cup 2021/2022: Schedule, Dates and Venues

The schedule is set: The IBU has published the biathlon calendar for the 2021/2022 world cup season. We have taken a look at the venues of the Olympic season and listed all biathlon dates with start times directly afterwards. Also a PDF for printing and an iCal for the calendar import may not be missing. If there are any changes, they will be added as soon as possible.

The Venues

The World Cup in Oberhof will take place in January 2022.
© Zweckverband Thüringer Wintersportzentrum The World Cup in Oberhof will take place in January 2022.

According to the current plan, almost 70 races in 10 World Cup venues are on the programme for the biathletes in the winter of 2021/2022. Originally there would have been as many as 11 venues, but the IBU decided early on to make a first change. The March World Cup in Minsk (Belarus) will be cancelled due to the political situation and planning uncertainties and will instead be held in Kontiolahti, where the season was supposed to start in November. 

The 2021 season opener will now take place with a double weekend in Östersund. After that, two more World Cup venues are on the programme in December: Hochfilzen in Tyrol and Le Grand Bornand in France. During the Christmas break, some top stars will be at the start again at the World Team Challenge. It is unclear whether this can take place in the stadium on Schalke or whether a substitute venue will have to be found outdoors, as was the case last year.

In January, the World Cup team will move on to Oberhof, Ruhpolding and Antholz, the three most popular World Cup venues. Whether thousands of fans will be able to join them on the track will probably only be decided a few weeks beforehand.

The highlight of the season will certainly be the Olympic Winter Games in Beijing in February 2022. After the test events during the World Cup were cancelled, courses and shooting range in Zhangjiakou National Biathlon Centre are new territory for the athletes.

In addition to Kontiolahti, there is also a premiere in March: Otepää in Estonia will host a Biathlon World Cup race for the first time. The end with the awarding of the crystal globes will then traditionally be the final at Holmenkollen in Oslo, Norway, after the event had to be cancelled there in the two previous years due to corona.

That would be super cool if you could create a google calendar file with all those events detailled ! So that we'll only have to save it and then receive notifications before those race will start ...

Hi Marc-Antoine. We already have an ical function on our German version of this calendar (just change the language via the country flag). The English ical will follow in the next days.

The iCal feature is now online. :)

Why do the diathlon people not have a mass start for the 31 to 60 group. A B-group mass start
