Because of the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic, the WCA Board and the core organization team have decided to postpone the WCA World Championship to December 28-31, 2021.
We believe that the chances of carrying out the World Championship in July are decreasing. There is a good chance that in July at least some global restrictions caused by the pandemic will still be in force. A Championship in December 2021 means a postponement of 5 months. These months could be very crucial as far as the pandemic is concerned, and would make it much more likely that we can have a Championship in its own right.
As a reminder, Championship dates are not officially confirmed until the competition website has been created and announced on the WCA website and is shown on the Competitions page. You can read the announcement from the organization team here.
Thanks for your understanding. We hope to see you in 2021 in Almere. Stay safe!
