The 19th FINA World Masters Championships 2022 were initially scheduled for 31 May â€“ 9 June 2022 in the Japanese cities of Fukuoka, Kumamoto, and Kagoshima.

“The decision to reschedule the 19th FINA World Masters Championships 2022 has been jointly taken with the Fukuoka 2022 Organising Committee and relevant parties,â€ FINA President Husain Al-Musallam said. â€œFollowing the postponement of the 19th FINA World Championships 2022 Fukuoka, we believe that this is the best solution for the athletes, officials, fans, and everyone involved. Hosting the 19th FINA World Masters Championships 2022 across the three beautiful cities of Fukuoka, Kumamoto, and Kagoshima will provide a fantastic opportunity to inspire the next generation of aquatics stars in Japan and around the world.â€
