This year's Diamond League athletics meeting in Doha, initially scheduled for 9 October, has been brought forward and will take place on 25 September, organisers announced on Monday.
The event scheduled in Doha, which serves as the traditional season opener, had previously been pushed back from its 17 April slot due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
"Due to the ongoing global health situation and ever-changing COVID-19 regulations, the 2020 Wanda Diamond League calendar remains provisional and subject to further changes," organisers said in a statement.
The competitive season is set to begin in Monaco on 14 August followed by meetings in Stockholm, Lausanne, Brussels, Rome-Naples, Doha and a yet to be determined location in China.
Diamond League meetings in Eugene, London, Paris, Rabat, Gateshead and Shanghai have been cancelled.
