FIM World Supercross Is Coming To Canada This Fall

Canada’s going to get another chance at the FIM’s World Supercross championship, with a visit to Vancouver planned this coming October.

In fact, the upcoming event will be the season-opener for the FIM World Supercross series, but it’s not a very long series. After the Vancouver race (held at BC Place on October 26), the racers will meet again in the Aussie city of Perth over the November 23-24 weekend for a double-header race at HBF Park.

From there, the next stop in the series is the UAE, with a race on December 4 in Abu Dhabi. So all in all, four races—like we said, a short season.

But there’s a good reason for this. The world’s top Supercross racers obviously want to be free for the American championship, so the global series has to plan around that schedule, which the current four-round series allows. And also remember that this series is still really not that old; since its debut a couple of years ago, the organizers have dealt with constant setbacks.

“When the FIM World Supercross Championship set out on its pilot season in 2022, it held a bold vision for the future,” said Andy Edwards, SX Global Executive Chairman, when announcing the 2024 season. The goal was to take Supercross to an international level by bringing it to an engaged yet underserved global audience, while vying to identify and gain a foothold in new regions and markets with previously untapped potential.

“With races in Vancouver, Perth and Abu Dhabi, our 2024 season builds upon this promise but only represents the tip of what we want to achieve with WSX in the long term. We’re looking forward to continuing our journey this year and can’t wait to engage audiences globally with the most exciting racing Supercross has to offer.”

Well we do like the idea of bringing the racing to Vancouver, as Canada hasn’t really had much in the way of proper international FIM racing in a long time, and despite a change-up at the head of the CMA, we’ve heard very little to indicate that will change soon. Should we be surprised? In our current era of shrinking motorcycle promotional budgets, we should be happy (and we are!) that any FIM racing is coming here at all.


  1. Like last year these guys had no intention of holding a race in Canada. They need to have dates to legitimize their so called “world events”. Don’t make plans to see a race at BC Place. They’ll cancel it just like they did in 2023.
