With less than 100 days to go, tickets have been placed on sale for the first World Aquatics Championships to be held in the Middle East.

Doha is set to provide the backdrop for the event from February 2-18, next year. With less than three months to go, Qatar is gearing up to welcome more than 2,600 athletes representing over 190 nations, as well as dignitaries and fans. 

World Aquatics and the local organising committee of the World Aquatics Championships – Doha 2024 have revealed that 75 medal events are set to take place across six aquatic sports: swimming, diving, water polo (pictured), artistic swimming, open water swimming and high diving.

Tickets are available in three categories, with category one ranging from QAR 35 (£8/€9/$10) to QAR 200, providing prime seats within the venue. Category two prices will start at QAR 20, while the multi-session pass option is reserved for spectators that would like to attend one or more sessions of a selected sport over one competition day. The passes will start from QAR 200, with each customer able to purchase up to 10 per session, per category. Fans can now also secure their ticket for the opening ceremony. 

“With 100 days to go until the World Aquatics Championships – Doha 2024, we celebrate this occasion by inviting everyone in Qatar and around the world to join us at the historic, action-packed championships taking place in the Middle East for the very first time,” said Sheikha Asma bint Thani Al Thani, director of marketing and communications for the opening and closing ceremonies committee. 

“Qatar has established a legacy for successfully hosting major global sporting events. We are ready once again to warmly welcome world champions and Olympians, emerging competitors, devoted fans and spectators to Doha for an unforgettable experience, both inside and outside the competition arenas.”

The Championships will be held across three main venues: The Aspire Dome, Hamad Aquatic Centre and Old Doha Port. The opening ceremony will take place on February 4 at the Aspire Dome, following the first few days of competition.
