Months after staging the 2019 World Para Athletics Championships, the Dubai Club for People of Disabilities will again receive the best athletes in the planet for the first stop of the 2020 Grand Prix circuit between 14 and 17 March.

It will be the fourth consecutive year that the Fazza International Championships open the Grand Prix season.

Next year’s circuit is set to be one of the strongest to date as it will offer the world’s best Para athletes the chance to test their skills on the international level in the lead-up to the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.

For many, it will also be the final opportunity to achieve qualification for the Paralympics.

“We could not be more excited about the upcoming season after a successful World Championships. Many young talents who succeeded at Dubai 2019 had made their international debut at the Grand Prix. said Head of World Para Athletics Haozhe Gao.

“This has always been one of the main objectives of the Grand Prix; to provide a platform for the development of our sport across all regions.”
