The Doha Diamond League athletic event is set to take place on May 28 next year according to the calendar released for the 2021 season yesterday.
The provisional calendar for the 2021 season sees a return to a full schedule of 14 meetings culminating in a winner-takes-all season finale in Zurich.
Now in its 12th annual cycle, track and field’s premier season-long competition will begin on May 23 with the Meeting International Mohammed VI in Rabat, Morocco.
After making a stop in Doha, the competition will head to Europe with Rome hosting a meet on June 4, followed by Oslo a week later.
Following stops in Stockholm, Monaco and London in the first two weeks of July, there will be a month-long pause for the Olympic Games in Tokyo.
The series will resume in Shanghai on August 14 before a continent-spanning double-bill the following weekend. August 21 will see the new Hayward Field in Eugene host its first Diamond League meeting, while August 22 will host the first edition of a brand new Diamond League meeting in China, details of which are to be announced in due course.
Athletes will return to Europe for the final leg of the season, with meetings in Lausanne, Paris and Brussels before the season finale in Zurich from September 8-9.
In the first 13 meetings, athletes will earn points in a bid to qualify for a place in the final, where they have the chance to win the Diamond Trophy and be crowned Wanda Diamond League champion in their chosen discipline.
The calendar, however, remains subject to changes depending on the global health situation in 2021.
