The FINA World Swimming Championships (25m) will be hosted at Etihad Arena – Yas Island’s brand new multi-purpose arena set on the stunning waterfront at Yas Bay. Designed with sustainability at its core, the venue offers a dynamic event space that will be transformed into an aquatics haven during the Championship.
