Eindhoven Selected as ISL Host City For Playoff Phase of Competition

The International Swimming League (ISL), which will begin its third season later this month, has announced that Eindhoven will serve as the host city for the playoff phase of the season. The Dutch city will be the focal point of the campaign from November 11-28, with the league’s top eight teams battling for a spot in the Grand Final, which is scheduled for January.

The ISL regular season, which features the league’s 10 clubs, is scheduled for August 26-September 26, with Naples, Italy serving as the host. While some of the top names in the sport have opted for a break from competition following the Olympic Games in Tokyo, many of the sport’s superstars will be in action when the third season gets underway.

‘’We are very happy that Eindhoven is ready to join Naples, Budapest, Dallas, Las Vegas, London and others on the list of exciting cities the ISL has partnered with,” said ISL Founder and President Konstantin Grigorishin. “The Dutch are knowledgeable and passionate swimming fans, who I am sure will be delighted to see local stars such as Ranomi Kromowidjojo, Kira Toussaint, Femke Heemskerk and Arno Kamminga in action.’’

Kamminga, who will be representing Aqua Centurions in Season Three, won silver medals in the 100 and 200 breaststroke events at the Tokyo Olympics. Three-time Olympic champion Kromowidjojo will swim for Team Iron, and Toussaint and Heemskerk will represent London Roar and Energy Standard, respectively.

The ISL is finalizing its global host city selection process for the third and final phase of Season Three, with an announcement set to be made in the coming weeks following talks with iconic destinations in Asia, Europe and North America.
