Following on from the success of London 2017 which saw the capital become the first city ever to stage both the World Para Athletics and IAAF World Athletics Championships in the same year, in 2018 athletic fans will see some top class sport in the UK with the Athletics World Cup London 2018 due to take place at the London Stadium on 14th-15th July 2018.
Eight of the top athletics nations in the world will battle for the inaugural World Cup Trophy, the competition format features all field and track events up to and including the 1500m and will star the world’s eight leading athletics nations over those disciplines: USA, Great Britain & Northern Ireland, Poland, China, Germany, France, Jamaica and South Africa. The ground-breaking two-day event takes place under floodlights across Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 July at the London Stadium.
Each nation will be competing for a $2million prize pot over two evening sessions of athletics.
To mark 100 years since women were given the right to vote, and as part of the Mayor of London’s #BehindEveryGreatCity campaign, the first edition of the event will see all Nations select a female athlete as team captain.
