There has been one change to the ski jumping World Cup calendar for the coming winter, and it concerns the World Cup in Predazzo (ITA). 
The World Cup in Val di Fiemme, which was also supposed to be a test for the 2026 Olympic Games, has been canceled, 
The facility on which the competitions for the 2026 Olympic Games will take place will not be ready in time for the planned World Cup date.

Last week, the FIS was informed by the Organizing Committee of the Olympic Winter Games, Milano Cortina 2026, that the ski jumping facility in Val di Fiemme will not be completed in time to host the 2025 test event, the Ski Jumping World Cup on 11 and 12 January 2025. 
The reason for the cancellation was communicated by the Province of Trento, which is responsible for the management and handover of the venue.
There are reports of considerable delays in the construction of the facility. The venue is expected to be handed over at the end of April 2025.

For FIS, this means that the FIS Men's and Women's Ski Jumping World Cup planned for January 11 and 12 will have to be canceled.

FIS Race Director Sandro Pertile explains: 
"The information we received last week was unexpected and unfortunately affects our World Cup calendar and the important preparation of the Organizing Committee for the Olympic Winter Games in Milan Cortina 2026.
Test events are crucial steps for the perfect preparation and execution of the Olympic Games“.
Nevertheless, Pertile is optimistic about the situation and has a plan B ready:
"The facility should be ready in April or May 2025, we have been given a binding promise. We will therefore organize Grand Prix competitions at the facility in summer 2025 as part of our summer competition series. We will hold individual competitions, men's super team and mixed team competitions, all as planned. Only in the summer.
This event will definitely give us the important experience and testing we need before competing at the Olympic Games.
The facility will also be open for training during the summer of 2025, allowing the teams to train and test at the facility.
In addition, and this is a very important point, we have an extremely experienced partner with the organizing committee in Predazzo.
World Cups have been organized there since 1990 and they know exactly how everything works, they have a first-class team in charge.
At the moment I'm assuming that the weekend will remain free in the World Cup calendar, as it's the weekend directly after the Four Hills Tournament. This will give everyone involved some time to take a deep breath in the middle of the tough season. At least that's the current plan,” concludes Pertile.
