The International University Sports Federation (FISU) confirmed during its Executive Committee on Friday 14th May, that the Chengdu 2021 FISU World University Games will take place at the end of June next year.
The world’s largest international multisport event for student-athletes is scheduled to take place on 26th June to 7th July 2022.
The event was postponed last month because of concerns surrounding the organisation of such an event during heavy pandemic related restrictions.
“I am glad we were able to find a suitable date for next year,” said FISU Acting President Leonz Eder. “The Chengdu 2021 FISU World University Games organising committee was ready and operational for the launch of the games this year, but given the current restrictions due to the global pandemic, it was jointly decided that it would be best to postpone the event until a further time when we would be able to conduct the FISU games in the best sports and social conditions.”
The next FISU World University Games, summer edition, are now confirmed to take place in Chengdu, Sichuan Province of China, from 26th June to 7th July 2022.
