The IAAF World Indoor Championships 2018
01.03.2018 - 04.03.2018
The IAAF World Indoor Championships Birmingham 2018 will be taking place at Arena Birmingham on 1-4 March with more than 650 athletes from 145 countries expected to compete.
This will be the second time that Birmingham has staged the Championships, having successfully organised the ninth edition of the event in 2003 – an event which saw the home nation secure seven medals, including golds for Ashia Hansen and Marlon Devonish.
Since 2003 the city of Birmingham has changed considerably, with new developments and improvements carried out across the city, including a £26 million revamp of Arena Birmingham, a venue which has now staged indoor athletics for 25 years, with 15 world records broken during that period.
The IAAF World Indoor Championships Birmingham 2018 will be jointly organised by Birmingham City Council and British Athletics, two organisations who are used to working together, both on major championships like the 2003 edition of the IAAF World Indoor Championships, the European Athletics Indoor Championships in 2007 and the IAAF World Half Marathon Championships in 2009, as well as the televised events, like today’s Müller Indoor Grand Prix.
