“The Universiade will be a great experience for the whole region. I am glad the people engaged into its preparation demonstrate great professionalism and are excited over the work. It’s important to save this core team till 2019", said Eric Saintrond, FISU SG/CEO.

The FISU CTI Chair Roger Roth mentioned the necessity of making some corrections on the existing slopes and some changes in the design projects of new sports venues and the importance of holding test events in the Universiade venues a year before the Games.

Victor Tolokonsky reminded the Organizing Committee members to follow all the FISU requirements: "I ask everyone involved into the Universiade preparation to mind each requirement and recommendation made by the FISU Technical Committee”, - emphasized Victor Tolokonsky. “The region’s and the city’s future depends much on our today’s decisions and actions, as the sports and infrastructure venues which will be built for the Universiade will contribute to the all-round development of Krasnoyarsk and students sport in our country for many years in the future. Everything must be done with commitment.”

The next visit of the WU-CTI in the regional capital is expected in 2017.
