The 2015 World Archery Championships was the 48th edition of the World Archery Championships. The event was held in Copenhagen, the capital city of Denmark from 26 July to 2 August 2015 and was organised by World Archery (formerly known as FITA).[1] Qualification and elimination rounds took place at the Sundby Idrætspark, with the medal matches on 1–2 August outside the Danish Parliament building Christiansborg Palace. The competition was preceded by the World Archery Congress on 24–25 July.

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]
