The 19th World Athletics Championships, set for August 19-27, will be held in Budapest, Hungary at the new National Athletics Centre on the bank of the Danube River. The event has already built quite a buzz overseas, as this will be the first time an outdoor World Athletics Championships has been held in central Europe.
Last year, the World Athletics Championships Oregon 22, held at Eugene’s Hayward Field from July 15-24, could be watched on NBC Universal/NBC and streamed on Peacock, YouTube, and some Facebook channels. The 2022 event was the most watched World Track & Field Championships since 1988, with 18.7 million viewers over the course of 10 days.
Outside of the U.S. however, the Championships can be followed and watched through BBC and through Warner Bros. Discovery, which agreed to a deal with the World Athletics rights-holders to broadcast this year’s event in more than 45 European countries on its platform Discovery+ and its channels Eurosport 1. Eurosport 2, and the Eurosport App.
Next week we’ll be kicking off World Champs Week with a full women’s Team USA debrief on Women’s Running, along with a roster of interviews with some of the best athletes on their way to Budapest.
In the meantime, the U.S. team has been officially announced and we’re eager to get to know our champions.
