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. It is intended that winners of the Tour will enjoy similar privileges in relation to World Indoor Championships qualification as Diamond League winners do in relation to World Championships in Athletics.[] The Tour is initially in place for two years. The Tour will expand with the inclusion of two further meetings, Düsseldorf, Germany by 2017 and a non-European meeting by 2018.[2] 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.

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.

Tour events for 2016 are 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 the tour events will be 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]
