The event’s trademark, which symbolises the past and present, is inspired by Abu Dhabi’s pearl diving heritage. It features a swimmer constructed from pearls who is powering through the water, which is representative of both the city’s proud history and the competitive nature of the Championships.

Made up of 46 different swimming events, the FINA World Swimming Championships (25m) will be held at the state-of-the-art Etihad Arena – the UAE’s largest multi-purpose indoor entertainment venue, which opened in 2020 and is located on Yas Island. The FINA World Aquatics Convention will also be hosted in the same facility, promising an Aquatic Festival in Abu Dhabi.

Taking place from Thursday 16 - Tuesday 21 December 2021, the FINA World Swimming Championships (25m) will showcase the very best swimmers of the planet, providing both local and international fans with the opportunity to watch top-quality competitive swimming action in the heart of Abu Dhabi. Originally scheduled for 2020, the FINA World Swimming Championships (25m) had to be moved to December 2021 because of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic. 

Qualifying events for the FINA World Swimming Championships (25m) will take place in Africa, America, Asia, Europe, and Oceania over the coming months, giving short-course swimmers around the world a chance to secure their spot at  the Abu Dhabi competition
