International Judo Federation

The International Judo Federation announced its world tour for 2021 with its world championship tournament to take place June 6-13 in Budapest, Hungary. Due to last year's Tokyo Olympics being postponed to 2021 because of pandemic concerns this marks the first time the men's world championships, and only the third time the women's world championships, will be held in the same year as the Olympics.

The world championships will serve as the final qualification event for entry into the summer Olympics judo competition, scheduled to be held the following month from July 24-31 in Tokyo, Japan. The world tour is slated to kick off January 11 with the Doha World Masters event and will include stops in Israel, Uzbekistan, Georgia, and France in the coming months with additional events for later in the year still possible.
