31th Summer World University Games

Chengdu (CHN), 16-27 August 2021


As the first world-class sports event to take place in western China, the 31st Summer World University Games is already helping usher an even-more invigorated sports and university vibe into Chengdu. The World University Games will take place from 16-27 August 2021. 


As the capital of the Sichuan Province, the city has already taken advantage of hosting the summer 2021 event by boosting its own sport IP as Chengdu builds itself into a world-famous city of sports events. 


Combining great strides in sports with the place’s time honoured history ensures the student-athletes that come east for the event a feast of food, sports and culture that will reverberate well beyond the field of place and the events of the day.  


"Twenty percent of the world's university students are in China, and the national university sports federation has a clear and proven capability of holding student sports events of the very highest quality, even at relatively short notice," said FISU President Oleg Matytsin. 


"We have no doubt that Chengdu 2021 will prove to be an exceptional World University Games host that will make a lasting and very positive impression both on the participants and on the city itself.”
