The programme featured was the same as previous World Archery Championships, with individual, team and mixed team events in the compound and recurve disciplines. A record number of athletes has entered: 623 archers across the four disciplines.[2] As well as participation, the Championships also broke public engagement and awareness records.[3]

The competition was also the first opportunity for recurve athletes to secure qualification for their NOCs at the 2016 Summer Olympics. An Olympic Secondary Tournament was held to rank finishers for the purposes of Olympic qualification.[4]
