The games are on! The International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) is set to bring the competition to Macau this April, as the city will be hosting its 2024 Men's and Women's World Cup.

In an announcement, ITTF revealed that this year’s Men's and Women's World Cup will take place at the Galaxy Arena from April 15 to 21, in partnership with the Sports Bureau, Galaxy Entertainment Group, and World Table Tennis Management Group Limited (WTMG).

The tournament will see 48 elite players from across the globe competing for the championship title. This includes reigning World U19 champions, with the aim of bringing young athletes’ talents forward to the global stage.

Aside from the most-coveted championship title, the players will also be vying for the US$1 million prize money through a series of breathtaking matches.

In efforts to make innovations with the games, the competition will also have new playing systems in place, including a round-robin tournament and a modified snake grouping system.

In a separate statement, Macau’s Sports Bureau said that the announcement demonstrates ITTF’s trust in the region’s ability to host major international table tennis events.

More details about the ITTF Men's and Women's World Cup will be unveiled soon. In the meantime, you can visit ITTF’s website or follow their Facebook and Instagram pages for more updates.
