Qatar hosts some of the world’s greatest sporting events, and the city is getting ready for yet another legendary spectacle this weekend.
The Fencing Grand Prix 2020 Doha will take place from Friday January 24 to Saturday January 26 at the Aspire Dome in Aspire Zone.
During these three days, the world’s best male and female sword players will take their opponents on in intense duels on an elevated piste, in an attempt to qualify for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.
More than 350 participants representing 150 countries will participate in the event. Widely considered as one of the top three tournaments in the world, Doha will be the first of three Grand Prix of the series before Budapest, Hungary and Cali, Colombia.
The tickets start at QR40 for the finale which will take place at 6pm on the third day, Saturday January 26. Day one and two will be the male and female qualifications all day, and it’s free to go and watch.
With the recently concluded FIFA Club World Cup and the Qatar ExxonMobil Open 2020 and the upcoming The Color Run, we already know that Qatar is one of the best countries to be in if you’re interested in sport.
See you at the sword fights.
