World Aquatics Championships

Only 50 days separate aquatic sports fans from the start of the first-ever World Aquatics Championships in the Middle East. 

Doha is gearing up to host 2,600 of the world's best athletes from nearly 190 countries, who will compete in an atmosphere full of excitement and suspense. The city is also preparing to welcome thousands of fans from around the world to watch this major sporting event, which will take place from February 2 to 18, 2024.

Expressing enthusiasm for this important milestone, HE Jassim bin Rashid Al-buainain, Vice President of the Local Organizing Committee of the World Aquatics Championships - Doha 2024 stated: 

"Qatar returns to the world's spotlight, but this time with Aquatic sports. We are delighted that Doha is the first stop for this prestigious event in the Middle East, and we are fully prepared to host athletes and spectators, organizing an exhilarating celebration of Aquatics excellence like no other."

"Hosting the World Aquatics Championships will be a new opportunity to affirm Qatar's excellence in organizing major sporting events. We are confident that the World Championships will leave a lasting legacy for our region’s hundreds of millions of young people and solidify Qatar's position as an exceptional sports destination in Aquatic sports and beyond."

'Nahim' and 'Mayfara', the captivating mascots of the World Aquatics Championship – Doha 2024, recently debuted at Old Doha Port, one of the event's three competition venues, alongside Aspire Dome and Hamad Aquatic Center. 

"Nahim," representing the gentle whale shark prevalent in Qatar's waters, symbolizes the nation's environment and cultural ties. Meanwhile, "Mayfara" embodies the vibrancy and diversity of coral reefs, reflecting Qatar's welcoming culture. Both mascots aim to promote environmental conservation and sustainability, inspiring unity towards a brighter future.
