LAUSANNE, Switzerland, March 12, 2019—The FIE and Organising Committee for the 2019 Senior Fencing World Championships are pleased to announce that press and media registration is now open. The Championships take place in Budapest, Hungary from July 15 to 23, with fencers competing in 12 events featuring team and individual competition for men and women in epee, foil and sabre.
With many fencers hoping to qualify and make national teams for next year’s Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, which for the first time will feature all 12 fencing events, the FIE expects a record turnout of participating athletes and countries. The Championships will take place at the BOK Sports Hall (formerly the SYMA Sports and Conference Centre), the same location where the 2013 Senior Fencing World Championships were held. This is the eighth time in fencing history that the city of Budapest has hosted them.
