You’re Out! Most Major International Sporting Events Cancelled for the Rest of the Year

Jul 24, 2020 | 08:00 Fri
The pandemic rages still, and international flights remain restricted. This means that international major sporting events will most likely be cancelled until further notice. Official promoter Juss Sports Group today announced that the cancelled events this year include the annual Shanghai Rolex Masters, Longines Global Champions, Shanghai Masters, and the IAAF Diamond League Shanghai. Notable exception was the Shanghai leg of F1, which was not mentioned. Doesn't mean it'll happen, but doesn't mean it has officially been cancelled. The General Administration of Sport have also released an official statement detailing that international sports events and activities (apart from ones events related to the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022) cannot be held this year.Juss Sports Group says it'll continue working with the Sports Bureau of Shanghai and other official associations to determine new dates for these championships soon.
