ISU World Figure Skating Championships 2025

The World returns to Boston in 2025!

The ISU World Figure Skating Championships® is an annual event that moves around the globe, attracting more than 300 million television viewers worldwide and showcasing the 200 best athletes from 50 countries in four disciplines: men, women, pairs and ice dance. An event of this magnitude could not take place without the contributions of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, the city of Boston and the Greater Boston Convention and Visitors Bureau. 

The 2025 World Championships will mark the United States’ 14th time hosting the event, and a second for Boston. Boston last hosted the World Championships in 2016, the last time the United States hosted the event. In 2016, athletes from across the globe performed in front of sold-out crowds with over 108,000 total fans in attendance.

In addition, the ISU World Figure Skating Championships® 2025 will serve as a key pre-2026 Olympic Winter Games event as the number of entries countries will receive in each discipline at the Games will be determined in Boston. Hailed as figure skating’s most prestigious annual event, the World Figure Skating Championships first began in 1896 and has continued annually to bring together the best figure skaters from across the globe to compete for the title of World Champion.
