On Tuesday, 30 August 2022, the name of the event will once again be Spitzen Leichtathletik Luzern. The competitions in Lucerne's Allmend Stadium will thus take place between the two Swiss Diamond League meetings Athletissima Lausanne and the season finale Weltklasse Zurich. "The date at the end of August offers the best conditions for having an attractive field of top international athletes in Lucerne," explains Karl Vogler, President of Spitzen Leichtathletik Luzern. The international stars will compete with the broad Swiss athletics elite in thrilling competitions. The meeting in Lucerne has silver status of the World Athletics Continental Tour.
The international competition calendar is packed in 2022. In July, the World Championships will take place in the US state of Oregon. In mid-August, the European elite will compete in the European Championships in Munich. For this reason, the Board of Spitzen Leichtathletik Luzern has decided not to hold the meeting in Lucerne at the end of June or beginning of July as usual.
Information on ticket sales and the programme will be announced soon.
