Maceió will be the center of university sports for a few days. The capital of the Brazilian state of Alagoas is home to the FISU World University Championship Beach Volleyball from 6 to 10 September and the FISU World University Championship Triathlon on 9-10 September.


The Beach Volley matches are being held on the Pajuçara Beach which had already hosted the 2012 edition of the Beach Volley World University Championship.


In total, 23 countries will participate in the Beach Volley competition and 20 in the Triathlon races.


Typical dances from the Northeastern part of Brazil featured at the opening ceremony, which attracted a large attendance as well as the local television. “It was important to show the culture of Alagoas and Maceió, I’m very pleased with the presentation and warm welcome of the public and delegations,” said Luciano Cabral, President of the Brazilian Confederation of University Sport.
