Limerick has won the right to host the 2023 World Archery Youth Championships. 

The competition will primarily held at the University of Limerick (UL).

The bid was supported by Archery Ireland, local and national tourism agencies and UL themselves.

Limerick beat competition from two other bidding cities.

World Archery's executive board awarded the 2023 World Archery Youth Championships to Limerick following a postal vote.

It will be the second major archery tournament to be staged in Ireland following the 2016 world field championships in Dublin.

Limerick bid committee director Adam Taylor said,  "This is fantastic news for archery in Ireland.

"While a lot of hard work has already gone into this bid we are looking forward to welcoming everyone to Limerick in 2023 and showcasing what Ireland has to offer."

The next Youth Championships are scheduled for Perth, Australia in 2021.

Speaking of Limerick, World Archery secretary general Tom Dielen said, "As a sport, we are constantly looking to work with host cities in the long term, building experience and expertise to leave a lasting legacy.

"Before 2016, Ireland had never hosted a World Archery event. But we are proud that we will build on the success of the competition held in Dublin and the passion of the organisers to return with another championships in 2023."
