Watch your favourite athletics stars compete in two nights of track and field events during the inaugural Athletics World Cup at London Stadium.
The groundbreaking event takes place across two evening sessions at the iconic venue in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, pitting the world’s top eight athletics nations against each other in track and field disciplines. Just one man and one woman from each nation are selected in each of the individual events, which include everything from discus and high jump, to 1500m and 100m races.
See athletes from China, France, Germany, Great Britain, Jamaica, Poland, South Africa and USA battle it out for the $2 million prize fund. Each of the teams are led by a female athlete, in recognition of the Mayor of London’s #BehindEveryGreatCity campaign, which commemorates the 100th anniversary of women being given the right to vote in the UK.

Both evenings feature eight field events and nine track events, finishing with thrilling relay races.
