100 DAYS TO GO UNTIL ATHLETICS RETURNS TO THE LONDON STADIUM WITH 33,000 TICKETS SOLD
With 100 days to go until the athletics returns to the London Stadium for the first time since 2019, excitement is building as 33,000 tickets have already been sold for this prestigious fixture on Sunday 23 July 2023.
The stadium will welcome the very best athletes from around the world in what will be the biggest one-day athletics spectacular of the year. With tickets starting at just £23 for adults and £5 for juniors, join the amazing atmosphere in the capital to watch a host of Olympic and Paralympic medallists compete on the famous track which played host to ‘Super Saturday’ and ‘Thriller Thursday’.
The event will be the tenth stop in the Wanda Diamond League series, with athletes continuing their Road To The Final to become the Diamond Trophy winner later in the season.
The event has played host to several iconic moments at the London Stadium over the last ten years, including race victories for 2012 legends, Usain Bolt (JAM), Sir Mo Farah, Hannah Cockroft and Jonnie Peacock, as well as a world record for Kendra Harrison (USA) in the 100m hurdles in 2016.
Looking ahead, many of the stars of the GB & NI athletics team will be using the 2023 event to fine tune their preparations ahead of this Summer’s World Athletics Championships taking place in Budapest (19-27 August). It will also be a homecoming to remember for returning medallists from the World Para Athletics Championships taking place in Paris the week before (8-17 July).
Athletes who will be competing in London will be announced soon as we continue the countdown to the event, with details on a ‘legends’ relay also due to be announced in the coming weeks, so follow our channels for updates.
