Yankton hub to host 2021 Archery World Cup Final in September

Yankton, which is set to host the World Archery Championships later this year, has been announced as the location for the 2021 Archery World Cup Final.

The World Cup Final is scheduled to take place on September 29 and 30, following on from the World Championships, scheduled for September 19 to 26.

If all goes to plan, it will end the outdoor season.

It is the first time the annual event will be hosted in the United States and the first time the two tournaments will run consecutively in the same location.

The World Archery Congress is set to also take place in the Yankton hub.

The decision was made to reduce travel issues at the end of the season.

Eight archers will compete in each division for the World Cup titles.

One archer in each of the four categories will be American, and they will be joined by the winners of the three World Cup stages in Guatemala City, Lausanne and Paris, as well as the individual Olympic champions from Tokyo 2020.

The highest-ranked archers on the circuit will fill the rest of the spots.
