Ten venues will host the Biathlon World Cup in the winter of 2022/2023, with only European destinations on the programme. Russian and Belarusian athletes and venues are not included, their ban was extended for the entire season due to the Ukraine war.

The season will kick off at the end of November in Kontiolahti, Finland. Afterwards, Hochfilzen (Tyrol) and Le Grand Bornand (France) will be visited in December. The World Team Challenge planned for the Christmas break is to take place again this year in the stadium on Schalke.

In January, the World Cup team will move on to Pokljuka (Slovenia), Ruhpolding (Bavaria) and Antholz (South Tyrol). The highlight of the season will be the World Championships in Oberhof in February 2023. Around 35 million euros have been invested in the expansion of the biathlon stadium in Thuringia.

After the World Championships, the World Cup will travel on to Nove Mesto (Czech Republic) and Östersund (Sweden) in March. The crowning finale with the awarding of the crystal balls will be the final at Holmenkollen in Oslo, Norway.

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

FlyingCloud013 weeks ago

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.

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. :)
