World Aquatics Championships 2022

The 2022 World Aquatics Championships also known as the FINA World Aquatics Championships will be held from 18 juni to 3 juli 2022 in Budapest.

Swimming, diving, high diving, open water swimming, artistic swimming, and water polo are all represented at the World Aquatics Championships. They are organized by FINA, and all swimming contests take place in a long course through a 50-meter pool.

The inaugural event was held in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, in 1973, and it is now hosted every two years. However, from 1978 to 1998, the World Championships were contested every four years between the Summer Olympic years. The Championships have been conducted every two years in odd years since 2001.

The tournament is open to athletes from all 209 FINA members. In 2019, new milestones were reached for the number of countries competing (192), as well as the number of athletes (2,623).

Marine Messe, an indoor multi-purpose complex, hosted the opening and closing ceremonies, as well as the swimming and synchronized swimming competitions. For the two-week timeframe, the makeshift 50-meter pool with 10,000 seats on three sides costs typically US$4 million. The diving competitions are held in the Fukuoka Prefectural Pool, with open water swimming taking place at Momochi Beach. The men's competition is conducted at Hakata-no-Mori Center Court, while the women's competition is held at the Nishi Civic Pool Complex.

Basically, the Marine Messe was erected for the 1995 Summer Universiade and was also held in Fukuoka, and will host the majority of the competitions.

The categorized competitions will take place respectively at the Marine Messe Fukuoka (swimming, synchronized swimming), Kokusai Center (water polo), Fukuoka Prefectural Pool (diving), and Boat Race Fukuoka (open water swimming, high diving).
