The Doha World Swimming Championships are set to take place from February 2 to 18, 2024, in Qatar's capital, featuring swimmers, water polo players, divers, synchronized swimmers, open water swimmers, and high divers.

Then from October to November 2024, the three-week Swimming World Cup tour will take place across Shanghai, Incheon, and Singapore.

The Doha World Swimming Championships were meant to take place in 2023, however, the Championships have subsequently been delayed until 2024 due to a knock-on effect of previous championships being pushed back due to Covid-19.
