BAKU - On the occasion of his visit to Baku for the 77th AIPS Congress, FISU Secretary-General/CEO Eric Saintrond met with several senior officials of the Republic of Azerbaijan. He was accompanied by Tofig Khanaliyev, the President of the Freewill Student Society of Sport Azerbaijan (GENJLIK), the Azeri member federation of FISU.

Baku was a candidate to host the 2019 Summer Universiade but withdrew its candidacy a few weeks before the final decision. The FISU SG/CEO met with the Minister of Youth and Sports Azad Rahimov which reconfirmed the interest of the Republic of Azerbaijan to organise a Summer Universiade. Work sessions should be held after the European Olympic Committees Games that will be hosted in Baku from 12 to 28 June 2015.
