World and European Event Bidding

Bidding for 2021-2024 World Rowing Indoor Championships and World Rowing Coastal events

FISA has launched the bid process for World Rowing Indoor and Coastal events from 2021-2024. Bidders will have the opportunity to bid on multiple World Rowing Indoor and Coastal events over the 2021-2024 period, and enable them to develop a long-term strategy as an event host.

Due to the COVID 19 global pandemic, FISA has extended the final bid deadline for the events below to 30 May 2020. The FISA Council and European Rowing Board (for European Rowing events) will attribute these events shortly thereafter.

The following events are open for bids:

World Rowing Indoor Championships: 2021-2024

European Rowing Indoor Championships: 2021-2024

World Rowing Coastal Championships: 2022-2023*

World Rowing Beach Sprint Finals: 2022-2023*

Combined World Rowing Coastal Championships & Beach Sprint Finals**: 2022-2023*

*2024 event is dependent on the IOC Executive Board Final decision on Olympic disciplines and events. This decision is anticipated for December 2020, and thus bidding for this event will not occur in this round of SEAP.

**In a year where a combined World Rowing Coastal Championships and Beach Sprint Finals is attributed, this would be in the place of two separate event attributions for the World Rowing Coastal and World Rowing Beach Sprint Finals. In a year where the World Rowing Coastal Championships and World Rowing Beach Sprint Finals are attributed separately, this would be in place of a combined event.
