At its meeting in Glasgow, the LEN Bureau allocated both the 2021 European Short-Course Swimming Championships and the 2024 European Aquatics Championships to the city of Kazan (RUS).

With a unanimous vote, the LEN Bureau chose Kazan as the host of the next European Short-Course Swimming Championships and also supported the city’s bid for the 2024 European Aquatics Championships in swimming, diving, artistic swimming, open water swimming, high diving and masters in all disciplines.

“We are happy to award both events to Kazan as the city has become a home of aquatics in recent years where the highest standards are guaranteed for our athletes” LEN President Paolo Barelli said. “Kazan has hosted a series of major events in aquatics including the 2015 World Championships and our junior European Championships this summer which were outstanding by all means. They have world-class facilities and an experienced organising team, today a federation cannot wish for more.”
