World Cup round #1 in Neuchâtel is dead. Long live Neuchâtel.

The postponed 2020 World Cup round #1 will take place in 2021. Same terrain, similar set-up and part of the World Cup 2021.

The event will take place 13-16 May 2021 in Neuchâtel in Switzerland. The program preliminary remains the same; a long distance, a sprint and a knock-out sprint.

“This is the best possible solution. We will be very well prepared to welcome the world elite orienteers and fans to the challenging long distance and the tricky sprint in the beautiful village Neuchâtel.”, says event Director Matthias Niggli.

Further decisions about the World Cup will follow.
