2020 Europeans

Though there are a lot of competitions ahead for the future participants as well as for the Arena itself – including the FINA Artistic World Series Super Final, the World Junior Swimming Championships and another leg of the swimming World Cup, all in 2019 –, the preparations for the 2020 European Championships are already under way.
For the first time since the WP Europeans held separately (1999), all disciplines will come to the same city though in different times of the year. In January 2020 the European Water Polo Championships will take place in the Duna Arena, a grand celebration of the discipline with high stakes since the winning sides shall qualify for the Olympic Games. Then in May the best divers, artistic swimmers and swimmers will gather in the Arena (and an elective LEN Congress is also planned to be staged in Budapest) – while the open water swimming event shall take place in mid-June in the well-known surroundings in Lake Balaton, at the city of Balatonfured.
