Draw of Barcelona 2013 Water Polo Tournaments to be held at TV Espanola Studios

BCN2013 - Water Polo

The draw of the Barcelona 2013 Water Polo tournaments will be the conclusion of a productive two-day meeting in the Catalan capital, putting an end to the FINA Bureau Meeting (22 and 23 February). Only five months ahead of the 15th FINA World Championships Barcelona 2013, FINA members will mainly focus on the presentation of the updated report for the upcoming major sporting event.

Only one day later, on Sunday, 24 February, the men’s and women’s water polo tournaments of the Barcelona 2013 World Championships will be drawn. Making good use of his visit to the Catalan capital, FINA president Dr. Julio C. Maglione will chair the draw, which will be held at TV Espanola’s Studio 6 in Sant Cugat del Valles.


Fans will be able to watch the draw live on TVE at 12 noon. Maglione will be accompanied to the draw by the co-presidents of the Barcelona 2013 Organising Committee, Maite Fandos (also Deputy Mayor for Quality of Life, Equality and Sport of the Barcelona City Council) and Fernando Carpena (also President of the Royal Spanish Swimming Federation). Gianni Lonzi, FINA Technical Water Polo Committee Chairman, will also attend the draw.
