Only some 16 months distant, staged in the splendid Busan Exhibition and Convention Centre, popularly known as BEXCO, the 2024 ITTF World Team Table Tennis Championships Finals will take place from Friday 16th to Sunday 25th February.

The announcement was made public on Thursday 22nd September at the Westin Chosun Hotel in Busan; an occasion when the Local Organising Committee was formerly declared.

Additional to key positions, Ryu Seung-min, member of the International Olympic Committee, ITTF Executive Vice President, and President of the Korea Table Tennis Association, alongside Park Hyeongjoon, Mayor of Busan Metropolitan City, were named Co-Presidents.

A momentous event for the Republic of Korea, it is a landmark in more than one respect. It will be the first time the nation has staged a World Table Tennis Championships in any format. Furthermore, as Ryu Seung-min stated in his acceptance speech, the tournament marks the centennial of table tennis first being known in the country.

Undoubtedly, proceedings are in safe hands, a fact acknowledged by Khalil Al-Mohannadi, ITTF Executive Vice President responsible for the World Championships portfolio.

In each of the men’s and women’s events in Busan, there will be 40 teams; as the hosts, Korea Republic, receives an automatic entry, a further 33 teams gain places via a continental stage in which all ITTF member associations may compete, the remaining six places are determined by intercontinental qualification.

Significantly, the eight quarter-finalists in each of the men’s and women’s events in Busan will gain places at the Paris 2024 Olympic Summer Games, the table tennis events in the French capital city being planned to start on Sunday 27th July and conclude on Saturday 10th August.
