The FINA Water Polo Challengers Cup Singapore 2019 Presented by TYR comes to Singapore for the first time and will see 10 teams battle it out from 8th to 13th October at the OCBC Aquatic Centre to be crowned champions.
Witness top water polo action with rivalries renewed, and come cheer on Team Singapore as they gear up to defend their title at the SEA Games 2019 in November.
First launched in 2007 as the FINA World Water Polo Development Trophy and contested every two years, the competition aims to promote water polo on a global scale, especially in countries where the sport has not reached its full development. In 2019, FINA renamed the competition to the FINA Water Polo Challengers Cup, and while this will be Singapore’s first time hosting the event, the Singapore team are no strangers to the event, having taken part in 4 previous editions, in 2009, 2011, 2013 and 2017, with their highest finish being runners-up in 2009. Singapore finished 6th twice in 2011 and 2017, and 9th in 2013.
