The United World Wrestling (UWW) has updated its event calendar for the next year’s season in order to reflect all recent adjustments made due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on a wide variety of international sporting events.
In order to add the Continental and World Qualifiers, the Continental Championships will be scheduled at the very beginning of the year. Since the Senior Pan-American Continental Qualifiers took place in 2019, the Continental Championships is scheduled to be held at the end of May.

In addition, the Cadet World Championships were moved to the end of July of next year in order to not interfere with the Tokyo Summer Olympic Games. There won’t be one full month between the Cadet World Championships and the Cadet Continental Championships. However, the deadline related to the registrations is still the same.
The Junior Pan-American Games has also newly announced that will be also organized in 2021. The qualification event for the Junior Pan-American Games will be the Cadet Pan-American Championships that will have to be organized earlier to allow enough time for the registration or the accreditation process. It has also been agreed that Argentina will host cadet and junior Pan-American Championships at the same time to reduce the cost of the Federations.
