32nd Summer Universiade Ekaterinburg presented itself as a “compact hub”, where all 18 sports programs would take place across a total of 28 venues, with 20 of the venues currently active. Out of the eight anticipated venues, only one would be purpose built for the Summer Universiade.
Ekaterinburg has hosted numerous sporting events and was also one of the venues for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
In addition to the 15 compulsory sports on the Summer Universiade programme, the city’s choices of boxing, rugby sevens, and sambo were approved for inclusion at the 32nd Summer Universiade.
A global city that spans two continents, uniting the whole world.
With its unique geographical position on the border of Europe and Asia, the city occupies a special place on the world map. Contemporary Ekaterinburg is rightfully proud of its history and achievements and makes ambitious plans for the future.
These plans are fueled by the city itself, one of Russia’s most vibrant educational, industrial, scientific and financial hubs. Long term, look for innovative, high-tech industries to play an even greater basis in the city’s economy.
