The 2022 WUC season will have two cluster events, namely Mind Sports – which includes Bridge and Chess – as well as Combat Sports, comprising Boxing, Karate, Muay Thai, Sambo, Wrestling and Wushu.


In addition, the 21 Championships to be held in 2022 include Beach Volleyball, Canoe Sports, Cross Country, Cycling, Futsal, Golf, Modern Pentathlon, Orienteering, Rowing, Sailing, Shooting Sport, Ski Orienteering, Speed Skating, Sport Climbing, Squash, Triathlon, Waterski & Wakeboard and Weightlifting.


The procedure for hosting a WUC in 2022 starts with a call for candidature. Candidate NUSFs (National University Sport Federations) are required to provide a bidding dossier to be examined by the FISU Executive Committee. The deadline for submission of candidature, with all completed documents, is 15 September 2019 at the very latest. More details on the candidature procedure can be found here.
