BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) The International Swimming Federation names Fukuoka, Japan, to host the 2021 world aquatics championships, while Doha, the capital of Qatar, will host the event in 2023.

Federation President Julio Maglione made the announcement Sunday after a meeting of top FINA officials.

Budapest was set to host the 2021 world championships, but was named last year as host of the 2017 event after Guadalajara, Mexico, withdrew due to financial concerns. The 2019 world championships will be held in Gwangju, South Korea.
