After Auckland from March 28-29, it’ll be the Gold Coast (April 11-12), Cape Town, South Africa (April 25-26); Yokohama, Japan (May 16-17); London (at a date to be determined); Hamburg, Germany (July 18-19); Stockholm (Aug. 22-23), Edmonton, Canada (Sept. 5-6) and the Chicago Grand Final from Sept. 15-20.

The ITU said a 10th city could be added to the 2015 calendar.
