International Ski Federation: "Together with our friends from Planica we will finish an equally successful and challenging winter season 2020/2021 with 4 Ski Flying competitions from 25 to 28 March in Planica.
To the three originally planned competitions (two individual and one team), an individual competition (replaces the individual competition from Vikersund, 21 March) will be added on 25 March. We thank the OC Planica for this additional competition.
Since the beginning of the season in Wisla (POL), we have successfully completed 26 out of 26 World Cup competitions in difficult conditions.
Unfortunately, despite intensive efforts in the past few days, we have not succeeded to replace the RAW AIR Tour, which was cancelled in Norway due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the related travel restrictions. So there will be no men's World Cup competitions on the two weekends 13-14 March and 20-21 March.''
Ski association of Slovenia noted: ''Ski Association of Slovenia has made in the past days a huge effort to enable additional competitions in ski jumping in Planica, after the cancellation of the Raw Air Tournament in Norway. The Covid19 pandemic has made it even harder to secure the additional funding of all events by our sponsors. We have been in close contact with a number of protentional partners, that would give us the opportunity to get sufficient financial impact to organize the additional events. At the end we have agreed together with FIS, that we are able to secure one more competition on the ski flying hill in Planica on Thursday, March 25th, 2021, during the previously confirmed FIS Ski Jumping Finals. So Planica will be the host of three single competitions and one team event.''
