This year Galà dei Castelli reaches to 10ᵗʰ edition
On Tuesday, September 15th, 2020, the Galà dei Castelli will once again offer a top-level athletics show. All the best swiss athletes, who have never done so well on the world stage as they are doing in this very particular season, will be starting at the Stadio Comunale, providing for a high-quality meeting.
The Galà dei Castelli is happy to announce that star athletes like World bronze medalist Mujinga Kambundji, fastest European sprinter Ajla Del Ponte, double European champions Lea Sprunger and Selina Büchel, and European U23 champions Jason Joseph and Simon Ehammer will be competing in Bellinzona in this very important event, taking place only a few days after the Swiss Championships, set to be held in Basel on September 11-12th.
The organizing committee is also in contact with many international athletes, and the chances to once again see Olympic, World or European champions are very high, even in these difficult and challenging times. We can therefore expect to relive the enthusiasm of the previous years, when champions like Asafa Powell, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, LaShawn Merritt, Justin Gatlin or Aries Merritt set di audience on fire.
Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the 2020 Galà dei Castelli could not take place in May, as it was originally scheduled. The organizers are happy to be anyway able to offer to all track and field fans a high-quality program after postponing the meeting, now set to take place on September 15th. This is only possible thanks to the support of sponsors and partners and the close work done with Swiss Athletics, whose 2020 #ChampsSeries will include the Galà dei Castelli.
As of right now, only a maximum of a 1000 fans will be able to follow the event at the Stadio Comunale, but everybody will be able to watch the meeting live: it is with great pride that the organizing committee is announcing the news that the italian-speaking Swiss national TV (RSI) will be broadcasting the Galà dei Castelli live from 19.30 to 21.05. At the same time, it will be possible to stream the competition on the athletics platform ubs-athletics.fans.
All information regarding tickets, the detailed program and new athletes will be updated as soon as possible on the meeting’s website www.galadeicastelli.ch, and on its official Facebook and Instagram channels.
