The FINA World League Inter-Continental Cup will mark the first time in FINA history that the Inter-Continental Tournaments will be hosted by the same national federation, at the same venue, at the same time. 

The tournament is the seventh FINA world event that New Zealand Water Polo has hosted since 2010. 

It'll be the second FINA event held at the Sir Owen G Glenn National Aquatic Centre, following the successful FINA World Women's Youth Water Polo Championships in December of 2016.

The event will be held con-currently with the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games across the Tasman Sea in Australia, bringing the taste and spirit of the games across the ditch to New Zealand and to the sport of water polo.

  • 2009 FINA World League 

  • 2010 FINA Women's World Cup

  • 2011 FINA World League Oceania

  • 2013 FINA World League Oceania
