About the ISL Season:
The six weeks of competition will feature 10 teams from North America, Europe and Asia, all loaded with the world's elite swimmers. All matches will take place at the Duna Arena in Budapest, Hungary.

The schedule was designed to produce six weeks of world-class competition while ensuring the health and safety of all those involved in the staging of the event during the COVID-19 pandemic. Starting with 10 group stage matches, the event will then move into two semi-finals before culminating in the final on 21 and 22 November. The decision to stage the final in the same location was to ensure the ongoing safety of the teams and to reduce the need to travel in these uncertain times.
