The IAAF World Indoor Tour is an annual series of track and field indoor meeting, held since 2016.[1] It was designed to create a IAAF Diamond League-style circuit for indoor track and field events, to raise the profile of indoor track and field athletics.

The Tour was announced with initially four events, three in Europe and one in the United States, leading to the 2016 IAAF World Indoor Championships in Portland, Oregon. Winners of the Tour enjoy similar privileges in relation to World Indoor Championships qualification as Diamond League winners do in relation to World Championships in Athletics. The Tour was initially in place for two years.

The Düsseldorf leg was added for the 2017 Tour, and the Stockholm leg was replaced by the International Copernicus Cup, a long-standing indoor event in Torún, Poland.[2] In 2018, the tour became a permanent fixture, and the Meeting Ville de Madrid was added as the sixth event on the tour.

The Tour is organized to allow for major indoor championships including the IAAF World Indoor Championships and the European Athletics Indoor Championships, and where appropriate, national championships and trials.

Scoring system

At each meeting a minimum of 12 events are to be staged. Included in the 12 events will be a core group of five or six events split across the two-season cycle.

For example: Tour events for 2016 and 2018 were the men's 60m, 800m, 3000/5000m, pole vault, triple jump and shot put, plus the women's 400m, 1500m, 60m hurdles, high jump and long jump.

In 2017 and 2019 the tour events were the women's 60m, 800m, 3000/5000m, pole vault, triple jump and shot put, as well as the men's 400m, 1500m, 60m hurdles, high jump and long jump.

Points will be allocated to the best four athletes in each event, with the winner getting 10 points, the runner up receiving seven points, the third-placed finisher getting five points and the athlete in fourth receiving three points.

The individual overall winner of each event will receive US $20,000 in prize money and, beginning with the 2016 edition in Portland, will automatically qualify for the next edition of the IAAF World Indoor Championships as a 'wild card' entry, provided the member federation of that World Indoor Tour winner agrees to enter the athlete.[3]

The following four meetings were confirmed for the 2016 season:[4]
