Sportsgrid.com also reported on the new horror and also wrote how Budapest got the right to organize. Originally, Budapest would have organized the World Championship in 2021, but Guadalajara eventually withdrew, because their economic situation would not allow organizing the World Championship which would cost about USD 100 million (approx. HUF 23 billion).
