Posted : 16 January 2024

Africa's table tennis powerhouses, Nigeria and Egypt, will know their opponents for the ITTF World Team Table Tennis Championships (WTTC) Finals Busan 2024 in South Korea on Tuesday, January 16. The draws for the global showpiece will take place at the Busan Exhibition and Convention Centre (BEXCO).

The tournament, which also serves as qualifiers for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, will have the top eight teams in the men's and women's events securing slots in the team event of the Olympic Games in France. The championship is scheduled to take place from February 16 to 25.

According to the ITTF, Nigeria, Egypt, Algeria, Tunisia, and Madagascar are Africa's representatives in the men's event, while Nigeria, Egypt, Algeria, Tunisia, and Mauritius will represent the continent in the women's category.

Egypt has already secured the continent's sole ticket in the team events (men and women), providing an opportunity for Nigeria and other African teams to join them in the team event of the Olympic Games.

With less than 30 days until the tournament, the draws, marking the official final countdown to the championships, represent a historic moment for Korea Republic as they host this prestigious event for the first time, promising a unique and unforgettable experience for all teams and spectators.

The draws will unveil the matchups for the thrilling matches, setting the stage for a captivating championship. Besides the Olympic tickets at stake, the championships will witness the globe's strongest teams competing for two of the sport's most coveted prizes: the Swaythling and Corbillon Cups.

The tournament also provides another opportunity to celebrate Korea Republic's place in table tennis history, as the first World Table Tennis Championships were held in London in 1926, and since 1957, they have been held biennially. The World Team Table Tennis Championships were first staged as their own competition in 2000.
