Two European cities and one Asian city have been selected to host the global e-sports world championship series.

Arena Games Triathlon powered by Zwift with the partnership of World Triathlon and Super League Triathlon will be held on April 9 2022 in Munich, Germany at Olympia-Schwimmhalle.

According to Super League Triathlon On April 23 2022 the game will be held in London, UK at London Aquatics Centre and finally the Grand Final will be organized on May 7 2022 in Singapore.

The Arena Games Triathlon is a trailblazing concept pioneered by Super League Triathlon, grown from an ambition to drive competitive triathlon throughout the global pandemic.

2021 saw the first multi-city version of the Games set in Rotterdam and London; the recent partnership with World Triathlon means the Arena Games Triathlon will be bigger and better than ever in 2022, with a return to London (23rd April), a first Arena Games Triathlon event in Munich (9th April), and an inaugural Grand Final in Singapore (7th May).

To host the events in accordance to local safety protocols and COVID regulations the authorities are working accordingly.

The blend of real-life and virtual reality racing provides an immersive viewing experience that allows fans to get up close and personal with the best triathletes in the world without leaving the comfort of their seat.

The event also gives e-sport fans, and lovers of sports statistics, the chance to enjoy live data from the athletes in real time.

Born in the COVID era but promising a new generation of stars, the Arena Games Triathlon is the future of indoor racing.

Each event will contribute points to the World Triathlon World Ranking, and the athletes who collect the most points over the course of the series will be awarded the first-ever triathlon esport World Titles in Singapore.

All three venues will see the return of fast and furious Elite racing, offering an incredible spectator experience for the fans.

“We are delighted to welcome three amazing cities such as London, Munich and Singapore to our roster of hosts – we cannot think of a better scenario for the 2022 season of the Arena Games Triathlon. The three events offer a combination of vast experience of triathlon events, Olympic tradition and great hosting capabilities, so I am sure that both athletes and fans will enjoy it. We cannot wait for the start of the esports season!”, said World Triathlon President and IOC Member, Marisol Casado.
