FISA, rowing's governing body, has announced that Bled in Slovenia and Varese in Italy will stage the first World Rowing Cups of 2015 and 2016, respectively.
Bidding for those two events was reopened at the FISA Congress last September, after the ruling council decided that bids from within Europe should be considered, having previously requested offers from other continents only.
Bled will stage the first World Rowing Cup of 2015 in early May, after which Varese and Lucerne in Switzerland will stage events.
The first World Rowing Cup of 2016 will take place in Varese in mid-April, with subsequent rounds being staged in Lucerne and Poznan in Poland.
Matt Smith, executive director of FISA, said: "There are two reasons for the placement of the first World Cup into May in 2015 and April in 2016. First, is that the coaches asked that we return to a European-based World Cup series in the [Rio 2016] Olympic Qualification year and the Olympic year. Second, is that the European Championships have become a really good event and its placement in the calendar works well for the teams."
