Mississauga to host World Rowing Indoor Championships
Rowing fans, get ready!
The World Rowing Federation has announced that Mississauga will be hosting the World Rowing Indoor Championships in 2023.
While this is the city’s first time hosting the World Championships, it has hosted the Canadian Indoor Rowing Championships (CIRC) for the past 11 years.
The Championships, set to be held on February 25 and 26, 2023 at the Paramount Fine Foods Centre, will be two full days of race events combining the CIRC program alongside World Rowing Indoor events.
2,500 to 3,500 participants from around the world are expected to attend.
“Mississauga is thrilled to be selected to host the 2023 World Rowing Indoor Championships. Our successful bid reflects our ability to manage internationally-known sporting events at a premiere sports venue like the Paramount Fine Food Centre,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie.
Other major cities around the world that bid to host the Championships include Lima, Peru; Beijing, China; Cairo, Egypt; Hamburg, Germany; Prague, Czech Republic; and London, England.
“Mississauga is a diverse, welcoming and energetic city. We can’t wait to welcome the world’s top indoor rowing competitors, their coaches, families and fans to our great city in 2023.”
