Well, not so bizarre anymore. The 2012 Winter YOGs in Innsbruck closed in the town plaza. The 2013 Francophonie Games in Nice also used the Place Messina in Nice as their OC venue. So, it's becoming a trend for the smaller competitions.

Yeah true. Hopefully as the Universiade gets bigger they start using Stadiums for Winter Editions. Trentino has experience now.

How do you know it was brilliant? Big coverage in the UK? Not a word of it here, so I wouldn't be able to judge.

Maribor forced to pay compensation to FISU over cancellation of 2013 Winter Universiad

March 4 - The Municipality of Maribor has been forced to pay compensation to the International Federation of University Sports (FISU) after the Slovenian city was unable to stage the 2013 Winter Universiade.

Maribor was stripped of the hosting rights for the Universiade in March 2012 after FISU claimed it had no choice but to take the decision because of serious delays and the withdrawal of Government funding which threatened the event.

Maribor had been awarded the Games in 2008 but now city's officials have been ordered to pay a hefty compensation fee to FISU.

Reports claimed FISU were demanding €4.85 million (£4 million/$6.7 million) for the cancellation but Marko Zula, an official from the Maribor administration, has denied this and claimed both sides reached an out-of-court settlement for an undisclosed amount, much lower than this figure.

The budget for staging the Games had been set at around €33 million (£27 million/$45 million), with 30 per cent of this being funded by the Slovenian Government.

But a series of problems dogged Maribor's preparation, culminating in the resignation of the entire Organising Committee and this, coupled with the withdrawal of Government funding, led to the decision to hand the Games to Trentino.
