The 70th edition of the Miss World competition will take place in the “latter part of 2021,” according to a statement posted on the pageant’s official website on July 29.
Miss World Organisation chairman and CEO Julia Morley earlier made the announcement to all national licence holders.
“We have made the decision to delay the 70th Miss World final. Safety is paramount as we continue the fight against Covid-19. We look forward to welcoming the Miss World family to our very special celebrations next year.”
The host country and venue for the 70th edition will be confirmed “very soon,” the statement added.
