World Aquatics on Friday announced Singapore as the host of the World Aquatics Championships, which will take place from 11 July to 3 August 2025.

Six aquatic sports- swimming, water polo, diving, artistic swimming, open water swimming and high diving will be held across 24 days with over 2500 athletes expecting to participate.
