The 2024 Diamond League season will commence in April with two events in China, specifically in Xiamen and Shanghai. Following these, the season will culminate in a two-day finale in Brussels in September, as announced by organizers on Monday.
In the previous year, COVID-19 restrictions caused delays in venue renovations, leading to the cancellation of the Shanghai event, even though the Diamond League had a lineup of 15 meets.
Xiamen is gearing up to host the inaugural event of 2024 Diamond League on April 20, with Shanghai making its return to the calendar for the first time since 2019, just a week later.
In the following month, meetings will take place in Doha and Rabat before the U.S. stop, and the Prefontaine Classic in Eugene, Oregon, will return to its traditional late May slot, having hosted the 2023 season finale.
The European leg of the tour begins on May 30 in Oslo, followed by Stockholm three days later. A brief hiatus in June will allow countries to conduct their Olympic qualifying trials.
July will see meetings in Paris, Monaco, and London, with the Paris Games commencing later in the same month. The series resumes on August 22, concluding with the last leg in Lausanne, Silesia, Rome, and Zurich.
Notably, Brussels will assume the role of the host for the final event for the first time since 2019, marking its 11th time overall, with the meet set to take place from September 13 to 14.
