Get ready to witness the exhilarating revival of the ITTF Singles World Cups! Mark your calendars from April 15th to 21st, 2024, as the world’s finest table tennis talents converge for an electrifying showdown with a USD 1 million prize money.

The decision to resurrect the ITTF World Cups underscores the ITTF’s strategic vision and unwavering dedication to revitalizing the sport’s illustrious heritage. With the centenary celebrations approaching in 2026, this initiative embodies the ITTF’s commitment to infusing iconic events with renewed energy and excitement.

Who’s In: A total of 48 players will earn coveted spots in the Singles World Cup lineup. Forty-four players will qualify through the Continental Cups or World Ranking, with up to two host association players receiving nominations. Member Associations can enter up to four players each, excluding the reigning World Champion and U19 World Champion, who secure automatic qualification.

Innovation at its Finest: True to its tradition of innovation, the ITTF promises a tournament experience like never before. Since its inception in 1980 in Hong Kong, China, the World Cup format has evolved while maintaining its core principle: assembling the sport’s elite from every corner of the globe for a fierce competition.

Get ready for an electrifying experience with a new playing system. The action kicks off with Stage 1, where players are divided into 16 groups of 3, engaging in intense round-robin battles. The top-ranked players lead the charge in each group, while the rest are drawn in using a modified snake system, ensuring every match is a showdown of skill and strategy. To keep the competition fierce and fair, players from the same association are pitted against different groups, and matches will be 4 games (result 4-0, 3-1, or 2-2).

The ultimate goal? Securing that top spot of the group to advance to the knockout draw of Stage 2. Here, it’s every player for themselves as they vie for victory in a heart-pounding battle of wits and athleticism. With matches escalating to the best of seven games, fans can expect nothing short of edge-of-your-seat excitement.

Where the Action Unfolds: Prepare to be mesmerized at the Galaxy Arena, the premier indoor venue in Macao, China. This cutting-edge arena will blend the world of table tennis with entertainment, delivering an unprecedented spectacle for spectators worldwide.
