About the Winter Universiade
The Universiade, also known as the students’ World Sports Games, is an international multi-sports event that has taken place every two years since 1959 and is organised by the Fédération Internationale du Sport Universitaire (FISU). The Universiades are held in odd-numbered years, alternating with the World Championships for Students in Even-numbered Years. The word Universiade is a combination of university and Olympiad.
Like the Olympic Games, the Universiade is held in winter and summer. With around 13,000 participants from 141 nations (as of 2017), the Summer Universiade is the second largest multi-sport event in the world after the Summer Olympics.
Sports represented at the Summer Universiade are: Athletics, Basketball, Fencing, Football, Gymnastics, Rhythmic Gymnastics, Swimming, Water Jumping, Water Polo, Tennis, Table Tennis, Judo and Volleyball. For the 2017 Summer Universiade, Taekwondo will be added to the list of compulsory sports and archery will be added in 2019. In addition to these obligatory sports, the respective organizer can optionally include three further sports from the FISU sports canon.
The Winter Universiades’ fixed programme includes the following eight sports: Alpine Skiing, Nordic Skiing (cross-country skiing, ski jumping, Nordic combined), figure skating, ice hockey, short track, biathlon, snowboarding and curling. For the Winter Universiades, the organiser can also choose up to three optional sports.
The first Summer Universiade was organised by FISU in Turin (Italy) in 1959 and the first Winter Universiade in Chamonix (France) in 1960. Prior to that, it was only the “World Winter or World Summer Games for Students”. The last Summer Universiade 2017 in Taipei (Taiwan) was thus the 29th Summer Universiade and the Winter Universiade 2017 in Almaty (Kazakhstan) the 28th Winter Universiade.
In Duisburg, the only German city so far, a summer Universiade took place in 1989. In Austria, the Winter Universiades took place both in 1968 and 2005 in Innsbruck, with Seefeld also appearing in 2005 as a joint venue with Innsbruck.
Brasilia withdrew from the orientation planned for 2019 because the financial situation was too risky. On 5 March 2016 FISU awarded the orientation to Naples and the Campania region.
