The 137th IOC Session, set to take place from 10 to 12 March 2021, originally in Athens, Greece, will now be held virtually. This decision was taken by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Executive Board (EB) .

The decision was taken in order to respect the strict measures being implemented now all over the world to contain the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic and bring the number of cases down.

This will be the second IOC Session to be held remotely, after the 136th IOC Session in July 2020. The Session agenda will include, among other topics, the presidential election, in which IOC President Thomas Bach will stand unopposed for the IOC Presidency. Full details on the timings and programme of the Session will follow in due course.

The IOC EB also decided to propose to the IOC Session in March that Athens should be selected to host the IOC Session in 2025.

“The IOC would like to thank its Greek partners, in particular the Hellenic Olympic Committee, for their understanding and the great work they have done in preparation for the IOC Session,” the IOC President said.
