Weltklasse Zürich is more than just a night of athletics on the highest level. In 2022, there will be as many as 10 “Weltklasse” days. A number of Weltklasse Zürich pop-up events will premier from 1 to 7 September 2022. They include all kinds of activities for people of all ages in the lead-up to the athletics highlight, the Wanda Diamond League Final on 7 and 8 September. Six final competitions will be staged on Zurich’s Sechseläutenplatz on Wednesday, and as many as 26 finals will be part of the event at Letzigrund Stadium on Thursday.
