Montrealers will have a chance to cheer on divers from Team Canada as they prepare for the 2020 Olympics. From Feb. 28 to March 1, nearly 100 elite divers from 14 different countries will come to the Montreal Olympic Park’s Sports Centre to compete at the highest level.

The 2020 FINA World Diving Series will be welcoming many international and local stars, including favourites and Canadian Olympic medalists Jennifer Abel and Meaghan Benfeito, and Olympians Pamela Ware, Philippe Gagné, François Imbeau-Dulac and Vincent Riendeau.

With only five months to go before the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, spectators can expect an extraordinary show featuring Olympic-level athleticism at the historic home of the 1976 Games.

Athletes will compete in eight Olympic events and two mixed synchronized finals at three metres and 10 metres. Only the top divers from around the world have been invited to the competition, based on their performances at the 2019 FINA World Championships in South Korea. There will be six divers or teams competing in each event, meaning that exciting and spectacular finals will be on the schedule every day.

Ticket prices range from $14 to $27.50 per session, depending on the day and time. Spectators can also buy full-day passes, and weekend passes are available for $70.75. There is special pricing for children under 12. For more information on ticket prices and the full schedule, click here.
