Budapest to host 2022 Judo Worlds
Budapest will host the 2022 World Judo Championships, Marius Vizer, president of the International Judo Federation (IJF), announced in Budapest on Thursday, state news wire MTI reported.
Vizer is attending Thursdayʼs draw for the Budapest Grand Prix, a stop on the IJF World Judo Tour, to be held on July 12-14.
Hungaryʼs government declared its support for a bid by the Hungarian Judo Association to host the 2022 World Judo Championships in a resolution issued late in June. The resolution earmarked up to USD 3 million a year in 2020-2021, and up to USD 2 mln in 2022, for payment of concession fees, and also allocated an additional HUF 155 mln in funding in 2020, HUF 285 mln in 2021, and HUF 3.2 billion in 2022 to cover organizational costs.
Hungary previously hosted the World Judo Championships in 2017.
