The 14th World Championships in Athletics will be held in 2013 in Moscow, Russia.

The Council of IAAF approved the dates of 10 August until 18 August, 2013.

Bidding process

When the seeking deadline passed on 1 December 2006, four candidate cities (Barcelona, Brisbane, Moscow and Gothenburg) had confirmed their candidatures. [1] Gothenburg backed out later that month, citing lack of financial support from the Swedish government. [2] The IAAF announced Moscow the winning candidate at the IAAF Council Meeting in Mombasa on March 27, 2007.[3]
