The International Military Sports Council (CISM) has entrusted the organization of the 51st World Championship in Naval Pentathlon to the Finnish Defence Forces. The main organizer will be Finnish Navy. The championship will take place at Finnish Coustal Brigade in Upinniemi, from 25 June to 2 July 2020.
The acquisition of new combat vessels plays a critical part in maintaining the Navy's, and thereby also the FDF's, capability. It will allow the Navy to maintain its maritime defence capability and secure the maritime traffic.
