World Swimming Championships Host Cities
Here are all the host cities and year of the World Swimming Championships since the first in 1973. In 1998, FINA decided to move the Championships from a four cycle to a two year cycle.
Three cities have hosted the championships twice: Barcelona (2003 & 2013), Rome (1994 & 2009) and Perth (1991 & 1998). In 2021, Fukuoka will host the event for the second time.
The Mexican city of Guadalajara was originally awarded the 2017 World Swimming Championships, but they withdrew and the event was given to Budapest Hungary, who had earlier been awarded the 2021 event.
