BMW IBU World Cup 2019-2020: Ticket Information
In the middle of June, winter might seem like a long time away and the 2019-2020 Biathlon Season won't be starting until late November. But that doesn't mean preparations for the next season aren't already underway. Federations, Athletes and Local Organising Committees are beginning to gear up for what is bound to be an exciting winter - and right now is the right time to start planning to be a part of it.
Many places have either opened or are going to open the ticket sales for the next winter. We will go through the 9 World Cup stops and the World Championships in Antholz one at a time and let you know when, where and how you can make sure you are part of the excitement that's watching biathlon live.
