The 2019 World Table Tennis Championships are to be held in Budapest, Hungary.

A commercial agreement has been signed between The International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) and the Hungarian Table Tennis Association (HTTA).

The last time Budapest hosted the tournament was in 1950.

ITTF President, Thomas Weikert, commented: “It is very nice to be here in Doha signing such an important agreement for our biggest event. We are looking forward to going to Budapest again after such a long time. We are sure that our friends from Hungary will do a fantastic job, and they will make an event to remember.”

HTTA President, Roland Natran, added: “Budapest is going to be the capital of table tennis next year. Sixty-eight years after the last World Table Tennis Championships in Budapest organizing such a great event is a great opportunity and great responsibility for Hungary and the HTTA too. Along with the ITTF I’m certain that we’ll be able to host a great World Table Tennis Championships.”
