2016 IAAF World Indoor Championships

16th IAAF World Indoor Championships
Host city Portland, Oregon, United States
Main stadium Oregon Convention Center

The 16th IAAF World Indoor Championships in Athletics will be held in 2016 in Portland, Oregon, United States.

Bidding process

Portland was selected unanimously with the only other bidder being 2003 host Birmingham, UK.[1] Birmingham was ultimately selected as the host of the 2018 IAAF World Indoor Championships.[2] The reason Portland was selected for 2016 and Birmingham being selected in 2018 is that the IAAF wanted more time between events in the UK with London hosting the 2012 Olympics as well as the 2017 World Championships in Athletics along with Cardiff hosting the 2016 IAAF World Half Marathon Championships.[3]

Venue

The event will take place at the Oregon Convention Center and will be fitted with the necessary 200m track and seating for 8,000 spectators.[4]
