Holland Beker hosts World Cup III 2019

It is our great pleasure to announce that the Aegon Koninklijke – Holland Beker will host the World Rowing Cup III in 2019!

During a conference following the 2017 World Rowing Championships in Sarasota, FISA granted the bid to organise the World Cup III to the municipalty of Rotterdam, Rotterdam Topsport and the Koninklijke-Holland Beker commission. This means that the 2019 edition of the Aegon Koninklijke – Holland Beker will be the official third World Rowing Cup of 2019. We are very excited for the opportunity to put our regatta on the international rowing calendar, ten years after the last World Cup was held in the Netherlands.

The World Cup will be held on 12- 14 July at the Willem-Alexanderbaan in Zevenhuizen, which has proven itself as an international venue hosting the successful 2016 World Rowing Championships.

The Koninklijke – Holland Beker commission is already working hard to make the 2018 edition of the KHB a success, as we look forward to an exciting future for our regatta and Dutch rowing in general in the pre-Olympic year of 2019!
