The tournament is dedicated to the 91st anniversary of National leader Heydar Aliyev. The event is co-organized by Azerbaijan's Water Sports Federation and country's Youth and Sports Ministry.
This year, the tournament has brought six teams together, while only four teams were represented in the competition last year.
