    And Brussels was out too, per this DL press release of August 26:

    <<Weltklasse Zurich will host the 2020 and 2021 Diamond League finals under the new one-final format that was jointly announced by the IAAF and Diamond League in March this year.

    The Diamond League was established in 2010 with two finals, traditionally held in Zurich and Brussels, but for the next two years Zurich, long considered one of the pre-eminent one-day meetings in the world, will host the single final.

    The selection of the final venue was also influenced by the scheduled renovation of the King Baudoin Stadium in Brussels over the next two years.>>

    Stockholm officially claimed they were out. I have not seen information as to why they are in again, other than that IAAF changed their mind.

    Would it be fair to assume that the new DL sponsor changed things? Because obviously everything except the events being cut(which have not been revealed) flipped on its side.

    Possibly. Article is old but does include this quote.

    Financial values have not been disclosed but Sebastian Coe, who was today re-elected unopposed as IAAF president for a further four-year term, described the deal with Wanda as "the biggest single commercial partnership in the history of athletics."

    To quote the King of Siam:

    There are times I almost think
    I am not sure of what I absolutely know
    Very often find confusion
    In conclusion, I concluded long ago . . .

    Is a puzzlement
