Candidature open to host 2022 World University Championships


Powerlifting to make a dynamic debut in 2022


LAUSANNE – Squat, bench, dead. These three words are all set to added to the FISU vocabulary, as the exciting sport of powerlifting will make its debut in the FISU sports programme in 2022, as a World University Championship. The chance to host that inaugural championship is now open!


The World University Championships are the most dynamic and varied FISU events that take place every alternate year. As single sport competitions, they give multiple cities a chance to host a major international sports event with minimum cost and complexity.


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.


Please find a template for a letter of intent here, as well as a Bidding Brochure and Bidding Guidelines. The FISU World University Championship looks forward to receiving bids and can be contacted at: championships@fisu.net.
