The World Surf League (WSL) has announced the schedule for the 2024 Championship Tour (CT). The calendar will continue to showcase a combined women’s and men’s schedule featuring nine regular-season events, a Mid-season Cut after CT Stop No.5, and the fourth-annual WSL Finals.
2024 will also see Fiji return to the schedule for the first time since 2017 as the final stop of the regular season.
Jessi Miley-Dyer, WSL Chief of Sport said: “I’m stoked that we’re bringing Fiji back. It’s such an iconic wave, and it’s the perfect place to test our surfers as they battle to secure their place in the WSL Final 5.
“This is an outstanding result for the WSL Championship Tour, and we are absolutely thrilled and sincerely thankful to partner with the Fiji Government to bring the event back for 2024,” said Andrew Stark, WSL APAC President. “The Fiji event has always been a favourite for surfers and fans alike, and we look forward to watching the world’s best take on the infamous Cloudbreak next August. We are also truly excited to work with the Fijian people and local communities to create a lasting impact in Fiji.”
Next year, surfing will also make its second appearance in the Olympic Games at Paris 2024.
