Nine countries will be represented: Brazil, Egypt, France, Greece, Italy, Lithuania, Principality of Monaco, Turkey, Hungary. After Italy, France is the nation with the biggest number of teams (19), followed by Hungary with 14 (Ferencvaros, U11 vice-champion in 2017 is among them) and Greece with 5: Patras, last year U9 runner-up, will be again at the Festival. Egyptian Gezira, representing the African waterpolo, will return to Lignano along with Lithuanian Vilnius, that missed the 2017 edition, Turkish Galatasaray, at their second experience at HaBaWaBa International Festival, and Brazilian Abda Bauru. The Principality of Monaco will be represented by AS Monaco Natacion in the U11 tournament, whereas the 2017 U9 champions Team Azur will once again be formed by French and Monegasque athletes.

NEW RULE. A new very important rule has been inserted in the game regulation: during the game’s situation in equal numbers, an attacker can’t stay in the centerforward position (in front of the goal and inside the 5 meters area) for more than 5’’. That new rule was already tested in HaBaWaBa Plus U13: it aims to increase the dynamism and the speed of the game and, at the same time, to help the technical development of the little waterpolo players.

VILLAGE RENOVATION. Moreover, many of Bella Italia & EFA Village’s facilities were renovated, the venue will be nicer and more comfortable in order to please the numerous guests: HaBaWaBa International Festival 2018 could exceed the number of 3,611 participants (considering all of athletes, coaches, team managers, staff and fans) of 2017 edition.

COUNTDOWN. HaBaWaBa International Festival 2018 will start on June 17th, when the teams will arrive in Lignano Sabbiadoro. Both tournaments, U11 and U9, will begin on June 18th, finals are set for June 23rd. The following day all the teams will leave the village.
