The FINA Water Polo Technical Congresses took place in Budapest (HUN), and approved the new rules of the respective disciplines for the period 2017-2021.

At the Water Polo Congress, the delegates approved the Bureau’s recommendation to only validate the rules related with the recent IOC decision to increase the number of teams in the women’s Olympic tournament, from eight to 10. 

This was accompanied by the reduction of each national squad composition (for both men and women), from 13 to 11 players. 

The Congress delegates approved the necessary adjustments in the rules concerning this change, only applicable at Olympic level.

After the Magyar rendezvous, the Bureau approved the organisation of a FINA World Water Polo Conference until the end of 2017 to discuss and propose new ways of enhancing the first Olympic team sport in the five continents. Taking into account the outcome of this gathering and after receiving the updated proposals by the new Technical Water Polo Committee to be nominated in Budapest, FINA will call an Extraordinary Congress to validate these changes by the end of 2018.
