World Figure Skating Championships 2020 canceled due to coronavirus

ISU World Figure Skating Championships 2020, scheduled for March 16-22 in Montreal, Canada, has been canceled because of the coronavirus outbreak.

The International Skating Union (ISU) left open the possibility of scheduling world championships this fall.

“Considering the current uncertain developments surrounding the Coronavirus pandemic, a rescheduling and/or relocation of the above-mentioned Championships within the current season, even if the season would be extended by several weeks after its normal end in early April, cannot be reasonably considered,” the ISU announced. “During the coming weeks, the ISU will evaluate in cooperation with all stakeholders whether the ISU World Figure Skating Championships 2020 could possibly be held later in the year, but in any case not before October 2020.”
