Yankton, SD, to Host 2021 World Archery Championships
24 Feb, 2020
World Archery has awarded its 2021 World Championships to Yankton, South Dakota, on the final day of its Congress in the Netherlands. This information was carried in Inside The Games.
Yankton was given the hosting rights for the 2021 World Championships by the Executive Board. The city staged last year's World Indoor Championships – the last edition of the event after delegates voted to scrap it yesterday – and is due to host the 2020 World Field Archery Championships.
Competition in 2021 will take place at the NFAA Easton Yankton Archery Complex.
"Archery and Yankton are inextricably linked," said World Archery President U?ur Erdener.
"The city has rallied around two of our previous World Championships and we expect a similarly high standard of event and the same incredible community spirit in 2021. While it may not be the largest or most populous place on the planet, Yankton may be the most passionate about our sport – and for the athletes, the audience and the atmosphere at the world championships, passion matters."
