ISU Challenger Series 2020/21 - Still subject to confirmation

This is where we discuss figure skating and skating related items. How did you favourite skaters perform, and so on? However we never speculate on the private lives of skaters, like who might be going out with whom, because that is poison and is not tolerated here. A good guideline is that if it's not publicly announced, in the papers etc. then it's probably best to leave it alone. Is it a gray area? Then write to me and ask.

From the same ISU communication (#2316) that confirmed the cancellation of 2020 Worlds: https://isu.org/inside-isu/isu-communic ... -2020/file
The Council approved the Challenger Series in Figure Skating Calendar for the season 2020/21 as follows:
  • Beijing / CHN - September 9 - 13, 2020
  • Oakville, ON / CAN* - September 17 - 19, 2020
  • Bratislava / SVK - September 16 - 19, 2020
  • Oberstdorf / GER* - September 23 - 26, 2020
  • Espoo / FIN* - October 8 - 11, 2020
  • Budapest / HUN - October 15 - 17, 2020
  • Almaty / KAZ* - October 29 - November 1, 2020
  • Warsaw / POL - November 12 – 15, 2020
  • Innsbruck / AUT - November 23 – 30, 2020
  • Zagreb / CRO* - December 2 – 5, 2020
* denotes Events with Pair Skating.

The above calendar, same as the calendar of other ISU series, is subject to a timely normalization of the coronavirus situation allowing the safe organization of ice skating events this Autumn. While the Challenger Series events remain the property of the organizing ISU Members who remain the key decision makers for those events, the ISU is closely monitoring the respective developments with the expectation and hope that the situation will be restored to normal as quickly as possible. The ISU will inform ISU Members in case of any development or related ISU recommendations and/or decision.
As Carol Lane pointed out in a live chat with PJ Kwong and Kurt Browning on Facebook yesterday, much of the 2020/21 season, especially internationally, will depend on when skaters can get back into on-ice training, as well as on the international travel situation.
