On the back of the successful conclusion to the 2014 ITU World Triathlon Series, ITU is pleased to confirm the 2015 ITU World Triathlon Series calendar. For the first time, the 2015 Series will touch down in at least nine cities across five continents, and includes a variety of new and familiar sites.

"We have an incredibly exciting season lined up for 2015," said ITU President and IOC Member Marisol Casado. "As we continue to evolve the sport of triathlon, the Series will be showcased in more countries than ever before and in regions of the world that are not regularly exposed to triathlon."

2015 ITU World Triathlon Series
March 28-29 Auckland, New Zealand
April 11-12 Gold Coast, Australia
April 25-26 Cape Town, South Africa
May 16-17 Yokohama, Japan
Dates TBC London, Great Britain
July 18-19 Hamburg, Germany
August 22-23 Stockholm, Sweden

A possible tenth city could also be added to the calendar later in the year.

After debuting on the calendar this year, Cape Town is slated to return for its sophomore appearance on the Series. Seasoned stops on the tour, Yokohama, London, Hamburg and Stockholm, will again offer top-notch racing.

After serving as this year's Grand Final host, Edmonton will serves as the penultimate stop on the Series schedule before Chicago closes out the year on September 15-20.

The final World Triathlon Series ranking score will continue to be obtained by adding the points gained in the ITU World Triathlon Series Grand Final plus the five best scores in the ITU World Triathlon Series events.
