The Worlds will be held in South Korea for the first time, after Busan defeated Buenos Aires in a vote by members of the International Federation (ITTF) in Houston (United States), where the championships are being held this year.
The 2020 edition was originally scheduled for March 22-29 in Busan, but was postponed several times before being canceled.
“I would like to thank all the ITTF associations for their tremendous support in Busansaid Ryu Seung-min, president of the Korea Table Tennis Association and member of the International Olympic Committee. We will make it a competition focused on players and spectators. We also intend to create a knowledge transfer program during the competition to share our experiences and knowledge with other member associations. “
The 2022 Worlds will be held in Chengdu, China, while Durban, South Africa, will host the 2023 edition.
