The 2015 World Triathlon Series calendar is being expanded to include a new event in the next Commonwealth Games host city of Gold Coast.
Nine events - one more than this year - make up the 2015 calendar, while the International Triathlon Union (ITU) says a 10th stop could be added "later in the year".
As with this year, Auckland in New Zealand will kick off the Series on March 28 and 29, with Australian city Gold Coast, host of the 2018 Commonwealth Games, making its debut on April 11 and 12.
Cape Town, South Africa follows on April 25 and 26, with Yokohama, Japan on May 16 and 17 and the British capital London the fifth stop on a date to be confirmed.
German city Hamburg will host the world's best triathletes on July 18 and 19, with Swedish capital Stockholm next on August 22 and 23.
The 2014 Series finale host city of Edmonton in Canada will stage the penultimate race in 2015, with Chicago in the United States the scheduled final stop on September 15 to 20.
Chicago made its debut on the calendar this year.
In total, five continents will host a World Triathlon Series event.
"We have an incredibly exciting season lined up for 2015," said ITU President Marisol Casado.
"As we continue to evolve the sport of triathlon, the Series will be showcased in more countries than ever before and in regions of the world that is not regularly exposed to triathlon."
Javier Gómez of Spain won this year's Series, while the women's event was won by Gwen Jorgensen of the United States.
