Figure skating at its best
March 22–28 2021
195 figure skating stars to Stockholm
It is now official that there will be 195 figure skaters who will participate at the ISU World Figure Championships 2021 in Ericsson Globe Arena March 22-28. Preparations are currently underway to offer safe Championships for the skaters and a TV-party for the fans.
The ISU World Figure Skating Championships will be held in the Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm March 22-28. Due to the pandemic, there will be no audience, but that has not stopped the world elite from registering for the Championships.
It is fantastic to be able to offer Championships where the world’s best figure skaters participate. Even if the audience can’t be present in the Globe, this will be a real TV-party, says Peter Levin, technical manager Stockholm 2021.
Among the world elite can be mentioned:
Men: Yuzuru Hanyu (Japan)
Ladies: Bradie Tennell (USA)
Pair: Wenjing Sui / Cong Han (China)
Ice dance: Victoria Sinitsina / Nikita Katsalpov (Figure Skating Federation of Russia)
This year the ISU World Figure Championships will be different from previous years due to the pandemic. Being able to carry out the event in a covid-safe manner is the highest priority. This means that all competitors, their teams and staff around the competition will live in a “competition bubble” with PCR-tests and strict rules that ensure that no outsiders enter the bubble. At the same time as the Globe is being prepared to become a safe bubble, a fantastic TV experience is being prepared for the TV viewers.
More detailed information regarding the “Bubble” is available in the Health Regulations for Event Participants.
Even though we can’t offer a figure skating party for an audience in the Globe, we are now investing everything to convey the feeling from the ice to the TV audience. These Championships are of the absolute highest class and I know that the skaters are excited to meet their audience, says Ulrika Molin, President Organizing Committee of the ISU World Figure Skating Championships 2021.
All competitions will be broadcast.TV-schedule and programs will be presented shortly.
