The 2019 edition will be held by the US Squash, at Squash On Fire, the new state-of-the-art membership-free facility in Washington, DC.
Since its launch in 1967 in Australia, the Men's World Team Championship has been staged in 12 countries. It was hosted in North America (Canada in 1977) but never before in the USA.
Commenting on hosting the international championship featuring up to 32 countries, Squash On Fire Co-Founder Philippe Lanier said:
"Hosting the WSF Men's World Team Championship at Squash On Fire, is an honor - and that it's is happening in DC is also very exciting. We want to make DC the squash capital of the US, and we can't wait to welcome players from around the world to our game-changing facility."
WSF President Jacques Fontaine also expressed his delight in the initiative:
"The United States is a very strong and growing squash nation, so it is very fitting that they have the opportunity to host this Championship. I am sure that the visiting teams will have a great experience at the venues and the American capital generally."
Further details of the 2019 championship, including the event dates, will be announced later.
