The six-day FINA Men's Water Polo World League Super Final is kicking-off on Monday June 18 in Budapest (HUN), with the eight best teams from the Inter-Continental Cup and the European preliminaries.

Still fresh from Budapest World Championships' thrilling final in Margaret Island, current World champions Croatia and World silver medallists Hungary will be the teams to beat next week.

Australia, Japan, Kazakhstan and USA are the other teams qualified from the Inter-Continental Cup in Auckland held in April this year, while Montenegro and Spain are the remaining two European teams taking part.  

The groups' composition in Budapest will be as follows:

A1 AUS
A2 MNE
A3 JPN
A4 HUN
B1 USA
B2 CRO
B3 KAZ
B4 ESP

 

Serbia, not qualified for this Super Final for the first time since its inception, stole the World League title every single year since 2007, to the exception of 2009 when Montenegro won and 2012 when Croatia claimed the crown. In 2006 and 2005 Serbia/Montenegro were also the best in the World League.

Daily matches reports will be available on FINA website as of Monday June 18 until Sunday 23.
