Additionally, FISU provided the sports and venue seminars to the sports managers. The focus then shifted to the master plan of the games. The President of the Organising Committee, Chang-hee Kang and the FISU representatives had their first in person meeting during which they promised to further solidify the close commitment from both sides.

Thanks to the good preparation of the Organising Committee, the inspection was successfully completed. The FISU delegation gave an overall positive evaluation, confirming the good progress in preparing for the successful hosting of the Chungcheong 2027 FISU Games.

Jing Zhao, Director of FISU Summer Games Department commented, “We are very satisfied with the in-depth discussions with the organising committee on key areas of preparation for the Games.”

Vice-President Chang-seop Lee stated, “The visit of the FISU inspection team was a valuable opportunity not only to check our preparation status but also to receive a lot of feedback. We will continue to thoroughly implement the preparation process and do our best to ensure the successful hosting of the Games.”
