World Taekwondo championships

City Centre: Manchester Arena, Hunts Bank, M3 1AR,

Cost: From £11

Every day

For the first time the UK is bringing together over 1,000 of the World's best athletes in one unique sporting competition.

Held every two years, it's coming to Manchester for the very first time, bringing together over 1,000 of the World's best athletes.

All five days will see the best take on each other in matches across seven taekwondo octagons. Then, once the evening sessions begin, each day will have semi-final and final matches in a cauldron-like atmosphere. The lights get turned down and the walk-on music turned up, bringing us thrilling and inspiring sporting moments that you will not want to miss!

GB's Olympic medallists Jade Jones, Bianca Walkden and Lutalo Muhammad will all be working hard to secure more medals here and gain valuable preparation time ahead of Tokyo 2020. In the arena's party atmosphere, they'll be looking to the crowd to add some extra fire!

So whether you're looking to attend as a post-work night out, bring along the family or just share the moments with friends - there's something for all at the World Taekwondo Championships.
