Ten venues will host the Biathlon World Cup in the winter of 2024/2025, with only stops in Europe on the programme.

The season opens at the end of November in Kontiolahti, Finland. This will be followed by Hochfilzen (Tyrol) and Grand Bornand (France) in December. During the Christmas break, the World Team Challenge with many World Cup professionals will take place in the stadium on Schalke. However, the result of the TV event does not count towards the World Cup.

In January, the World Cup team will continue to Oberhof (Thuringia), Ruhpolding (Bavaria) and Antholz (South Tyrol). The highlight of the season will be the World Championships in Lenzerheide in Switzerland in February 2025.

After the World Championships, the World Cup team will travel on to Nove Mesto in the Czech Republic in March, before competing in Pokljuka, Slovenia. The end of the season will once again traditionally take place in Norway at the Holmenkollen in Oslo.

My screen to access biathlon videos in the US now looks completely different and now I have to set up a login to eurovisionsport to access the complete races. What other changes are in store?

I know it's not great, but you can get all the races on you tube in English. You just have to wait a few days.

I live in the republic of Ireland,where can I watch the biathlon
Cynthia

Cool, I'm not the only person in the country who follows biathlon. UK Eurosport no longer carry it and Eurovision page doesn't work for me; if it doesn't work for you(https://www.eurovisionsports.tv/ibu/) it might be that it's blocked in Ireland? Please let me know if you find a place to watch it.

Biathlon on discovery +. Go through amazon prime.

Bruce

NBC Peacock

Tom

I lost the Olympic Channel in my cable lineup. Will biathlon be on Peacock in the USA?
Mfs

Nope. And that sucks.

Matthew

Where will I be able to watch the events on TV this year?
Snow-Online

It depends on the country you live in. In Europe, the races are usually shown on Eurosport.

FlyingCloud01

Try Eurovisionsports.tv (online). Select International Biathlon. You’ll see the events, including zeroing, and can even re-watch previous year’s events. The commentary is in English. They don’t have Coach Salmela but that’s the only downside.
