To further contain the corona virus, the federal government recently decided to extend the ban on major events until December 31, 2020. Unfortunately, this ban also affects the Biathlon World Team Challenge, which was to take place on December 28, 2020 in its 19th edition in the VELTINS-Arena in Gelsenkirchen.
Together with the German Ski Association and chief organizer Herbert Fritzenwenger, FC Schalke 04, as the organizer of the WTC, has now decided to postpone the winter sports event by one year to December 2021.
The exact date can only be set at a later point in time and after consultation with the broadcasting public television company. The only thing that is certain is that the world’s largest biathlon spectacle will take place between Christmas and New Year 2021 as usual.
For all ticket buyers there is more information here.
FC Schalke 04 very much regrets the postponement of the Biathlon WTC 2020 and is pleased to welcome the numerous, loyal winter sports fans back to the VELTINS-Arena in December 2021.
