IAAF World Championships and World ParaAthletics Championships 2017

Building an Olympic legacy for the capital, London 2017 will see one of the world's greatest sporting events held in one of the world's greatest cities five years on from London 2012. Hosted once again at the Stadium on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park , London 2017 will be ready to welcome passionate fans representing every one of the IAAF’s 212 member nations back to the capital.

Winning the right to host the World Athletics Championships in 2017 in addition to London 2012 reinforces London’s position as a global leader for major sporting events and is testament to the investment we are demonstrating for the future of the capital and the lasting legacy of the Olympic Games.
