In December 2016, Windsor will welcome up to 1,000 of the world’s best swimmers from over 176 countries as they compete for World Championship glory in the 13th edition of the FINA World Swimming Championships (25m). Expected to draw more than 35,000 spectators, this elite competition will bring the world’s best swimmers together to compete for 46 gold medals over 6 days in a temporary world championship pool to be constructed within the WFCU Arena.
As the first time ever to be hosted in Canada, this international event will showcase Windsor on the global stage. Known for our powerful and dynamic manufacturing sector, Windsor is the perfect backdrop for this world-class display of performance, strength and dedication. With every stroke in the water, the character of our city will be reflected, providing an exciting opportunity for everyone to feel the power!
