Call for volunteers

From over 100 countries around the world, more than 1,200 participants will arrive at the end of this summer to the ICF Canoe Sprint World Championships organized in Hungary, Szeged.

The race is extremely special because the allocation of Olympic quotas is largely determined by this event. So the stakes are huge because the road to Tokyo leads through Szeged for every future canoe sport champion.


Szeged will be the centre of attention once more due to hosting this year’s ICF Olympic Qualifier Canoe Sprint World Championships in the ‘capital city’ of canoe sport.

The Olympic Centre of Szeged fully satisfies every requirement set by the International Canoe Federation (ICF).

The race course is 2,400 m long and 140 m wide. There is a separate facility available for warming up to all contestants. Since 2018 a major investment has taken place including road reconstruction and extension of the venue’s car parking capacity.

The infrastructure modernization of the covered stands, the media centre and the racecourse is also in progress.

The organizer Hungarian Canoe Federation is excited about the opportunity of welcoming the best athletes of the canoe sport to the internationally renowned Olympic Centre of Szeged.

Contestants and fans will be welcome to the event in the hope of having a happy and memorable time in the City of Sunshine.
