Universiades 2019 (FISU)

Recommended Posts


Kinda safe to say Krasnoyarsk will host the 2019 Winter Universiade. As for the summer one, I hope Brasilia wins, although you know how people are starting to get annoyed there because of the expenses of the sport venues so I'm not sure if it is a good idea.

President of Brazil receives FISU President and SG/CEO in Audience


Audience with the President of Brazil

BRASILIA On 17 October, 2013 FISU President Claude-Louis Gallien and FISU Secretary-General/CEO Eric Saintrond were received in audience by the President of Brazil, Mrs Dilma Rousseff. Present also were the Governor of the Federal District Agnelo Queiroz, the Minister of Sport Aldo Rebelo and CBDU President and FISU Vice-President Luciano Cabral, as well as the Executive Coordinator of the 2019 Summer Universiade Bidding Committee Julio Filgueira.

President Dilma Rousseff said that one of the strategic projects of the Brazilian government is expanding the access to higher education. She also mentioned that the Brazilian government is investing heavily in education and hosting the 2019 Summer Universiade would help consolidate sport as a tool for educational purposes. Mrs Rousseff reaffirmed her country's interest in hosting the Universiade. In the Bidding Dossier, the President signed the country's commitment to comply with all FISU requirements, which was ratified in the audience yesterday afternoon.


FISU Inspection Tour started

Yesterday, the FISU delegates began their inspection visit of the city of Brasilia, candidate to host the 2019 Summer Universiade.

The schedule of the visit, which will continue until 19 October, foresees a presentation of the technical aspects of the candidature; a visit of the sports venues and furthermore audiences with authorities at federal and city-state levels.

The first work session included a work meeting with CBDU President Luciano Cabral, the Assistant Secretary of the Sport Celio Renne, and Deputy Secretary of Tourism of Brasilia Geraldo Bentes.

Luciano Cabral presented the concept of the 2019 candidacy, the facilities that Brasilia offers, the importance of this student-sport event for South America and stressed the support of Brasilia’s citizens.

FISU President Gallien said that Brazil is considered one of the major emerging countries and its development should be focused on the education of youth. ‘Sport is a part of this education, which should be interdisciplinary’, Mr Gallien said. The FISU President mentioned that the Brazilian city of Porto Alegre hosted the only Universiade in Brazil in 1963, exactly 50 years ago. Mr Gallien recalled that at that time, Brasilia was emerging but today it is a city of culture and young people should be proud of their city and their country. He said that a successful bid of Brasilia might indeed trigger the opportunity to transform Brasilia and Brazil into a hub to further develop FISU in South America.

Wow! Baku NOT bidding for something!!!!!!

Baku withdraws bid to host 2019 Summer Universiade

October 30 - Baku has withdrawn its bid to host the 2019 Summer Universiade, leaving the contest next week between Brasilia and Budapest.

The Azerbaijani capital decided to pull out to concentrate on the three major events it has already been awarded.

They are due to stage the inaugural European Games here in 2015 and the Islamic Solidarity Games two years later.

In between, in 2016, they are hosting the World Chess Olympiad, the biggest event on that sport's calendar.

Azerbaijani officials feared that they would struggle to cope with the Universiade, which this year in Kazan attracted a record 10,442 athletes, because of the lack of accommodation and transport problems.

"Taking into account that Baku will host three large scale events between 2015 and 2017 it seems to be impossible to provide new accommodations within two years for all participants, athletes, sports officials, family and friends, media and guests of the FISU Universiade in 2019," said Tofig Khanaliyev, President of Freewill Student Sport Society of Azerbaijan, who was leading the bid.

But Baku would bid again for the Universiade, which claims to be the second biggest sporting event in the world after the Olympics, Khanaliyev promised.

"Azerbaijan gives a huge amount of investment in youth, sport and education spheres which increases year by year and the Government plans to continue this process in upcoming years," he said.

"In order to provide the best conditions for the young people and also to be an excellent host for the Universiade Games the new planning will focus on the specific requirements of FISU and on eco-friendly and sustainable buildings."

Baku is currently preparing to host the first European Games in two years, an event that that is expected to attract up to 7,000 athletes competing in 18 sports from 49 countries across the continent.

A state-of-the-art Athletes' Village has been built for the event but that is due to be sold off as private housing after the Games

"The sports venues would be 100 per cent ready if we hosted the 2019 Universiade," Azerbaijan's Sports Minister Azad Rahimov told insidethegames here.

"But we do not know about the accommodation, which is why we have decided to postpone our bid."

The International University Sports Federation (FISU) is due to choose host cities for both the 2019 Summer and Winter Universiades at its headquarters in Brussels on November 9.

While Budapest and Brasilia will be battling for the Summer Games, the Winter edition is set to be awarded to Krasnoyarsk in Russia after the only other candidate, Valais from Switzerland, withdrew to concentrate on bidding for 2021.

Budapest withdrawal leaves Brasilia as only candidate for 2019 Summer Universiade

November 8 - Budapest today officially withdrew its bid to stage the 2019 Summer Universiade, leaving Brasilia as the only candidate when a host city is chosen here tomorrow.

Azerbaijan's capital Baku had pulled out last week to concentrate on preparations for the inaugural European Games in 2015 and the Islamic Solidarity Games, which it is hosting in 2017.

The Hungarian University-College of Sports Federation (HUSF) blamed the cost of staging the Games but claimed they hoped to launch a bid for 2023.

It means that there is only one bidder each for both the Summer and Winter Universiades.

Krasnoyarsk in Russia is the sole candidate for the Winter Games after the only other bidder, Valais from Switzerland, withdrew to concentrate on a campaign to host the 2021 edition.

We're about to launch a CWG bid with the city of Londrina, Paraná State: yes, its name is loosely based in London. And we aim for 2022.

And Rio 2016 will be staged in our winter, so technically it will be both a summer and a winter games. We have it all.

Am watching the Brasilia presentation. If the others drop out, and you're the only one left, surely one must ask: why didn't the others drop out earlier so that the one sticking it out didn't have to spend a lot of money building the presentation....against NO ONE else. It's kind of a stupid process. They should fix that.

Maybe they should charge withdrawals with a fee, depending how close prior to the vote it happens - like hotels often do when you cancel your reservation.

Or charge a "higher" Applications fee and then the earlier you withdraw, the more you get back. But past a certain date, say one year before the FINAL deadline, you forfeit the whole sum if you withdraw -- and the remaining bidder gets part of the forfeited fees back to help compensate for their "lone" quest.

well its official now

November 9 - Brasilia and Krasnoyarsk in Russia were officially awarded the 2019 Summer and Winter Universiades here tonight after both were left as the only bidders for their respective events.

Brasilia's last rival, Budapest, had dropped out yesterday following the withdrawal last month of Baku.

Krasnoyarsk had been the only bidder for the Winter Universiade since Swiss candidate Valais had pulled out in September.

But that did not stop either delegation from investing heavily in its presentations.

Both were represented by their country's Sports Ministers, Russia's Vitaly Mutko and Brazil's Aldo Rebelo, flying in specially for the event.

For Russia it will be a fitting end to its "Decade of Sports" which will also have included the 2014 Winter Olympics and Paralympics in Sochi and the 2018 FIFA World Cup, as well as the Summer Universiade in Kazan earlier this year.

Brazil, meanwhile, will have staged three of the biggest events on the sporting calendar in a six-year period as Brasilia 2019 will follow the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Olympics and Paralympics in Rio de Janeiro.

Both cities still required more than 50 per cent of the vote to be awarded the Games.

You got no idea how many lies Brasília's team said in those videos. I'm happy we won, I just hope we do it right this time.

I'd like to see Brasília's project, but wasn't able to find it. Does anyone know where I could get it?

The logo isn't that of the last post, it's this one:


Sorry for the picture. Media team is not good, that was the best I found.

Lies? Which ones?

Great public transportation system, great 62% of facilities already built, respect for the environment, urban planning (not lie, but they're trying to change the project against UNESCO's recommendations).

One of the facilities for the Universiade is Claudio Coutinho gymnasium, it's closed for more than a decade. Probably needs complete rebuilding.

Fair enough about the transportation system.

About the rest I really have no information.

Hope, this universiade be a turning point for the city.
