The World Archery Field Championships were initially scheduled for 2020 and were postponed to this October due to COVID-19. This joint decision to delay the competition was made due to restrictions still in place because of the pandemic and to safeguard athletes’ wellbeing. The event was forced to move to 2022 due to the existing  Championship rotations and the delay of the 2020 Olympics.
