With just seven days remaining before the commencement of the ITTF World Team Table Tennis Championships Finals Busan 2024, anticipation builds for the electrifying spectacle set to unfold in the vibrant city of Busan from 16-25 February.

A host of compelling storylines awaits as the event draws near, with significant scores to be settled and historical stakes at play. Here are the 5 burning questions we ponder ahead of this prestigious event:

Will Home Advantage Propel Korea Republic To Glory?

Embracing the weight of the nations expectations, Korea Republic stands poised to dazzle local supporters at the esteemed BEXCO Convention Centre, eyeing potential success in both the Mens Team and Womens Team events. Despite a heart-wrenching loss in the semifinals to Germany in Chengdu two years ago, Korea Republic seeks redemption on home soil Korea Republic will look to capitalise on that extra boost, flying the flag with pride as Korea welcomes the worlds finest to its shores.

Can 2022 Silver Medallists Take The Next Step?

Germany and Japan emerge as formidable contenders to challenge Chinas dominance in Busan. Following commendable performances in Chengdu, both Germany and Japan are eager to elevate their game and claim the ultimate prize. With past silver medal finishes driving their ambition, Germany and Japan aspire to seize the moment and ascend to new heights in 2024.

Any New Contenders On The Block?

As the tournament approaches, attention turns to emerging talent and potential dark horses vying for podium placements. Hit with a frustrating round of 16 departure in Chengdu, five-time champion Romania will be determined to mount a stronger Womens Team campaign in Busan, while theres potential to grow for the ever-improving line-ups for Brazil, India and Egypt. Meanwhile, theres huge excitement surrounding the likes of France and Sweden in the Mens Team event as both look to better quarterfinal finishes from two years ago.

More Group Upsets On The Horizon?

Before championship dreams can materialize, teams must navigate the treacherous waters of the group stage. Chinese Taipei was the headline departure from the Mens Team group stage two years ago in Chengdu, rooted to the foot of Group 7 with three defeats, while Sweden and United States missed out in the Womens Team draw.

The group hurdle also presents opportunity for inspired performances, with Malaysia falling just short of a dream ticket to the Womens Team knockout rounds in Chengdu, winning two of their four matches. With memories of past upsets still fresh, and the unpredictable nature of table tennis on full display, the stage is set for thrilling encounters and surprising outcomes.

Can Anyone Snap Chinas Historic Run?

Clinching record-extending titles in Chengdu, all eyes will once again be on China to see if the Swaythling and Corbillon Cups once again end up in the record-holders hands. China has won both coveted trophies 22 times, the most of any team in the events history. The Asian powerhouse is going for a sixth Womens Team trophy in a row at the World Team Championships Finals, and 11 consecutive Mens Team titles at the event.

Yet, as challengers emerge and anticipation mounts, the quest for supremacy promises to be a battle of epic proportions. With just a week to go, dont miss out on all the action as the drama unfolds in Busan. Get your tickets here and visit the event page to stay updated with everything Busan 2024.
