The International University Sports Federation (FISU) has confirmed dates for the next set of FISU University World Cup events, to be held through 2021 and 2022. A Rugby Sevens Cup is all set to make its debut in 2022.
The sixth edition of the FISU University World Cup 3x3 Basketball will take place from 14-17 October 2021 in Xiamen, People’s Republic of China – the host city since the inaugural edition in 2015.
After resounding success in its inaugural edition in 2019, the University World Cup Football is all set for a bigger, better version 2.0 in 2022. Slated to be held every two years, the 2021 edition was postponed to 2022, as the continental qualifiers could not be staged in 2020.
The qualifying tournaments will now be held between May and October 2021, with the best university football teams from around the world battling it out in the world finals in Jinjiang, People's Republic of China, from 18-29 May 2022.
The newest addition to the FISU University World Cup portfolio – the UWC Rugby Sevens – will take place from 12-14 August 2022 in Kazan, Russia. The city of Kazan has proved itself as a successful organizer of sports events and had hosted the 2013 FISU World University Games.
