Tickets for the London leg of the FINA Diving World Series (17-19 May) will go on sale at 10am on Monday 19 November.
This prestigious and exclusive event will host Olympic, World and European champions from both Great Britain and across the world. The event will take place across 3 days of exciting action in the iconic London Aquatics Centre at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
The London event will be the final leg of the 2019 series which will have already had stopped in Beijing (CHN), Sagamihara (JPN), Kazan (RUS) and Montreal (CAN) before arriving in the British capital for the season finale in May.
British Swimming has worked closely with the Mayor of London’s Office and UK Sport to secure the event with FINA, which is a key part of the Tokyo 2020 medal development programme.
Tom Daley said: “The London Aquatics centre is such a great venue, and I feel honoured not only to have competed at an Olympics here, but also have it as my training base.
“I know having the Diving World Series in London will be great for those of us lucky enough to compete, but also for fans of sport generally and the entire city.”
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “I’m delighted to welcome this fantastic event back to London in 2019. I know how much Londoners and visitors have enjoyed seeing some of the world’s top divers compete here in recent years and I’m sure this will be another great competition at this world-class venue.”
Esther Britten, Head of Major Events at UK Sport added: “It is brilliant to see this event returning to the UK for the eighth time, and to be taking place at the Aquatics Centre, one of London 2012’s legacy venues.
“It will be vital for the British public to be part of this event, cheering on our wealth of home grown diving talent, as athletes, including Olympic medalists, prepare for the Olympic Games in 2020.”
Thanks to a partnership between British Swimming, UK Sport, London and Partners, London Legacy Development Corporation and GLL, the event will make its return to London for the first time in three years.
