|19th FINA World Masters Championships 2022 Kyushu||31 May, 2022 - 9 June, 2022|
It has been decided that the event will take place avoiding 2021, the year of the Tokyo Olympics, thus achieving an athlete-centred schedule in its complete form, without reducing any of the disciplines or shortening the competition schedule.
