During the time of the 17th FINA and World Masters Championships we will offer exciting programs to sport fans and to all our guests from around the world by the Dagály and the Alfréd Hajós aquatic complex at the so-called FINA Market areas. There will be 3 main themes:
- Culture – daily concerts and music for all age groups;
- Family and kids programs with various water related games;
- Gastronomy – festival-like atmosphere with a wide selection of food and drinks.
Those who are interested can visit the Museum of FINA (International Swimming Federation) by the Dagály Swimming Complex, where one can learn more about the history and milestones of aquatic sports. Sponsors of the World Championships will also be there to meet and greet the public. A merchandising stand will be set up here with the event mascot and with all other official giftware will be available here (and also at other sport venues).
In the close vicinity of the music fountain at Margaret Island, the main has been erected in the middle of a beautiful green park. Before and after the cultural happenings you will be able to follow the daily sport events on a giant screen, right next to the Water Polo site. We have no doubt that Margaret Island will be one of the most authentic fan zones of the World Championships.
Entry is free of charge to both FINA Markets, i.e. to Dagály and to a specific area of Margaret Island. Opening hours will vary depending on daily competition schedules at Dagály, while the venue at Margaret Island awaits you from 11.00 to 22.00.
The opening and closing ceremony of the World Masters Championships will also be held at the big stage of the Margaret Island FINA Market, making this a unique point of reference for the athletes.
It is important to mention that upon entering the location of Dagály security checks will be conducted, followed by another security and ticket control before entering the diving or swimming competitions.
For the sake of security and convenience we kindly ask you to check the list of items which are not permitted at event and sport venue sites.
