IBU World Cup Biathlon 2020/2021: Schedule, Dates and Venues

As an editor at Snow-Online I turned my hobby into my profession. Since September 2016 I have been in charge of the content. The mountains have always fascinated me. In winter, you can meet me in the ski areas not only on the downhill slopes, but also on the cross-country trails.

The schedule is set: Despite the corona epidemic, the International Biathlon Union (IBU) is optimistic about the winter and has published the World Cup calendar for the 2020/2021 season. We have taken a look at the venues and directly afterwards we have listed all biathlon dates with start times and disciplines clearly arranged. Download and print the PDF or import the iCal to your calendar, so you'll never miss a race! 

Important note: In the run-up to the new season, the calendar may have to be adjusted so that World Cups are merged or cancelled due to Covid-19. We always add this as soon as possible.

The Venues

In January the biathletes will be guests in Oberhof for two weeks.
© WSRO Skisport GmbH In January the biathletes will be guests in Oberhof for two weeks.

Over 70 races await the World Cup athletes in the 2020/2021 season, originally scheduled in eleven World Cup venues, but at the end of September the IBU decided to make a major change of plan. In order to minimize the travel activities of the biathlon troops, only two instead of four World Cup locations will be visited before Christmas.

The start will be at the end of November with the new opening event at Kontiolahti. The biathletes will stay there for the second World Cup weekend, which should have taken place in Östersund. In the connection it continues for two weeks to Hochfilzen. The side trip to Le Grand Bornand in France will be cancelled, as will the popular mixed event at the football stadium in Schalke.

After Christmas, three very popular World Cup venues – Oberhof, Ruhpolding and Antholz – would have been on the program in January. But even here there are changes, as the IBU announced in early October. The athletes will stay in Oberhof for two weeks and Ruhpolding will not be visited in order to reduce travel. The decision for Oberhof was also made at the request of the German federation to test some procedures for the 2023 Biathlon World Championships there. The World Cup races in Antholz, Italy, will then be held as planned.

The IBU wants to decide by November whether further World Cup venues will be removed from the calendar. But the Biathlon World Championships in February 2021 in Pokljuka are already fixed. After the Championships, a trip to Beijing is planned for the test event of the 2022 Winter Olympics, before the season ends with two March World Cups in Nové Město and Oslo.

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.
