The event’s sport programme will incorporate FISU’s compulsory sports: archery, artistic gymnastics, athletics, badminton, basketball, diving, fencing, judo, rhythmic gymnastics, swimming, table tennis, taekwondo, tennis, volleyball, waterpolo.
Universiade host cities may also present up to three optional sports for inclusion into that edition of the Universiade today. Ekaterinburg presented boxing, rugby sevens, sambo for the 2023 event. The FISU executive committee unanimously accepted all three sports.
The Ekaterinburg bid presented the city as compact hub, where all 18 sports training and competition would take place across 28 venues. Twenty of these venues are currently in place and home of sports activity.
Of the eight anticipated venues, only one would be purpose-built in anticipation for the Summer Universiade.
“This development is part of the city’s central development plan,” said 2023 bid director general, Alexander Chernov (right). “These sports complexes will be built whether or not you attribute the games to Ekaterinburg, but, of course, we hope you do.”
