The 26th Summer Universiade was attributed to the city of Shenzhen at the FISU Executive Committee meeting prior to the 2007 Winter Universiade in Torino. Other candidates were Kazan (RUS), Koashiung (TPE), Murcia (ESP) and Poznan (POL).
The Universiade is an International multi-sport event, organized for university athletes by the International University Sports Federation (FISU). The name is a combination of the words “University” and “Olympiad”. The Universiade is often referred to in English as the World University Games or World Student Games; however, this latter term can also refer to competitions for sub-University grades students, as well.
Shenzhen will host the Universiade in 2011 from the 8th of August till the 18th of August. The city beat out four other candidates – Kaohsiung of Chinese Taipei, Poznan of Poland, Kazan of Russia and Murcia of Spain.
