European Athletics today awarded the 2021 European Athletics Indoor Championships to the city of Torun in Poland.
The Polish city beat out Apeldoorn, The Netherlands in a close race between two strong bid teams with outstanding concepts for the championships.
European Athletics President Svein Arne Hansen said: “It’s time for Torun! I would like to congratulate both cities for their excellent presentations and visions for the Indoor Championships. In the end there can only be one winner, of course, and European Athletics is delighted to have the opportunity to work with the city of Torun over the next three years to deliver what I am confident will be world-class championships.”
Torun received 11 votes from the European Athletics Council to Apeldoorn's 4 votes.
This will be the second time the European Athletics Indoor Championships will be organised in Poland, following the 1975 championships in Katowice.
The 2019 edition of the Indoor Championships will be held in Glasgow from 1-3 March.
