The 2021 Veteran and Kata World Judo Championships will be held in the Portuguese capital, Lisbon, from 21st to 24th October for veterans and 26th to 27th October for kata.
Mr. Jorge Fernandes declared,
“We are really happy to have the opportunity to welcome our friends from all over the world. This year we organised the European Championships successfully. With the Veteran and Kata Worlds, we go to another level. With this event we want to show the judo community that there are many different ways to practise judo. In 2021 Lisbon was designated as the European Sports Capital. Unfortunately the event had to be cancelled several times in the past months, but today, we believe that we are ready to host it and we will. We have many Portuguese athletes who are performing in both categories. For them it will be a fantastic opportunity, to compete on home soil.”
