The World Athletics Council has selected Beijing, China, to host the 2027 World Athletics Championships.

The decision was made at the 234th World Athletics Council Meeting, held in Glasgow ahead of the World Athletics Indoor Championships (1-3 March).

The announcement comes after the Italian athletics federation announced it had withdrawn its bid to host the event in Rome after failing to receive financial support from the government.
