Witness the wonder at the World Athletics Championships Budapest 2023!

The biggest event in Hungary's history, the World Athletics Championships, will be held in Budapest from the 19th to the 27th of August 2023. More than 2,000 athletes from more than 200 countries will come to Hungary to celebrate and take part in the third biggest sporting event in the world.


The World Athletics Championships Budapest 2023 are about showing the world the best that Hungary has to offer, a true celebration of sport on a unique stage. It is the first time that Central Europe will play host to the most important event of the athletics calendar year, and with its world heritage sites and incredible panorama, Budapest is set to provide the perfect backdrop for athletes and fans alike.

A brand new, state-of-the-art venue is sure to make the event even more exciting, in the form of the purpose-built National Athletics Centre, which will become not only the new home of athletics, but also the largest competition and training centre in Central Europe.


It is the fervent hope of the event organisers that the legacy of the World Athletics Championships will continue far beyond just the 9-day event, continuing to lift the sport to new heights, getting people involved and inspiring the next generation of budding athletes.
