The FINA Men’s Water Polo Development Trophy is a precious tool for the progress of this discipline worldwide. The Trophy is a 12-team tournament with the national squads that are still making their way to the top-elite of water polo.

FINA’s strategy for all its Aquatic disciplines is focused on the universality and equity of opportunities for all National Member Federations. This competition is part of that effort to ensure these 12 squads a fair occasion to compete in a tournament with teams of similar level.

FINA World Men’s Water Polo Development Trophy last edition was held in Tehran (IRI) in 2015. Kuwait City (KUW) in 2007, 2009 and 2013 and Dammam (KSA) in 2011 previously hosted the event.
