Reconsideration of Fukuoka 2021 schedule following Tokyo 2020 postponement


Following the finalisation of the new dates of Tokyo 2020, the Organising Committee of the 19th FINA World Championships 2021 Fukuoka has found it difficult to maintain the initial schedule of the Championships (the World Championships scheduled from 16 July to 1 August 2021, and the World Masters Championships from 3 August to 12 August 2021) and has come to the conclusion that it must consider rescheduling the event in consultation with the International Swimming Federation (FINA).

While closely communicating and discussing with FINA, the Japanese government, the host cities, the Japanese Swimming Federation, the host broadcaster and other related parties, the Fukuoka OC will proceed with considering the new schedule of the Championships in an effort to take an athlete-centred approach and host the event in its complete form, without downsizing any aspect of the event.
