The 2022 World Trophy – formerly known as the Champions Trophy – will be held at the remarkable Rathausplatz, one of Vienna’s most renowned tourist spots, lying in front of the town hall and the iconic Burgtheater.
The pinnacle event of the extremely challenging Trophy format is part of a three-day celebration of TIMBERSPORTS® in the Austrian capital across the weekend of 27th-29th May, with the Rookie World Championship and Austrian Championships bookending the main event. Entry on each day is free, as fans are invited to watch a total of five thrilling competitions over the three days.
The World Trophy was set to be held in Vienna in 2020 but was cancelled due to the pandemic. With last season’s edition also not taking place, a European Trophy was held in its place. The 2019 edition saw USA’s Matt Cogar defeat the seemingly unstoppable Laurence O’Toole – at the time the STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® Individual World Champion – in a thrilling final watched live by thousands of fans in Gothenburg, Sweden, and millions of fans around the globe.
