The International Swimming League (ISL) moves to the knockout stage tomorrow, with eight teams doing battle over the course of two matches for the chance to secure a place in the coveted final.
As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, this year's entire ISL competition is taking place at the Duna Arena in Budapest, within a bio-secure bubble.
The first semi-final begins tomorrow and pits defending champions Energy Standard against the New York Breakers, newcomers Tokyo Frog Kings and London Roar.
Energy Standard finished second on the scoreboard after all teams had participated in four matches, with 15 points.
London Roar finished third after the first phase of the competition with 13 points, while Tokyo Frog Kings finished in sixth on 10 points and Breakers ended eighth with six points.
Semi-final one is set to be an extremely competitive affair with men's backstroke events likely to be among the highlights.
Energy Standard boast three short course world champions on their roster - Russians Evgeny Rylov and Kliment Kolesnikov and Matt Grevers of the United States - while London Roar has two of the league's top five backstrokers in their line-up - German Christian Deiner and Vrazil's Guilherme Guido.
Semi-final two begins on Sunday (November 15) and sees unbeaten Cali Condors face newcomers Toronto Titans, Hungary-based franchise Iron and Los Angeles Current.
The Condors are the team to beat as they finished top of the scoreboard on 16 points, winning all of their matches.
Of their opponents in the last four of the ISL, Current finished highest in the table in fourth place with 12 points, with Iron in fifth on 11 points and Toronto Titans in seventh with eight points.
