The Organizing Committee of the World Swimming Championships Fukuoka Tournament announced on the 4th that the new schedule of the tournament, which will be postponed from the summer of 2009, will be a total of 17 days from May 13 to 29, 2010.
The International Water Federation, which hosts the tournament, decided. The tournament was postponed to 2010 due to the spread of the new coronavirus infection, which overlapped with the Tokyo Olympic Games that started on July 23, 2009. In 2010, the Pan Pacific Championship Canada Tournament will be held in summer and the China Hangzhou Asian Tournament will be held in autumn, thus avoiding duplication. It was also announced that the Masters Swimming World Championship Kyushu Tournament, which was also scheduled for the summer of 2009, will be held from May 31 to June 9 of the same year.
