Dear Member Associations,
Dear Friends,

Following the decision of the last FISU Executive Committee in Naples, we inform you that the current bidding procedure is now open for a double attribution for 2022 & 2024 under the below conditions:

  • Minimum two very good dossiers for the same sport assessed by FISU TCC and WUC CTI submitted before 15 September 2019;
  • The event can be attributed for 2024, only if it is successfully attributed for 2022;
  • The potential hosts agree to organise the event in 2024 in a Cup (competition between universities) or Championship (competition between countries) format. The format for 2024 will be decided by FISU EC in 2020;
  • The final decision is at the sole discretion of the FISU Executive Committee following the same defined timeline as previously set for 2022 WUC attribution.

According to the procedure in our regulations, we remind you that only a FISU Member Association can submit a bidding dossier. Any candidature submitted to FISU with all completed documents and payment of the bidding fee until 15 September 2019, at the latest, will be analysed by the FISU Technical Committee Chairs concerned and by the WUC Evaluation Committee.

We also inform you that Cheerleading is now officially open to bidding as a Cup (competition between universities) from 2022. You can find the list of events open to candidatures in appendix of that letter.

In advance, we would like to thank all Member Associations for their contribution to the development of University Sports and to the success of the 2022 and 2024 season.

Should you have any questions, we are at your disposal for any clarifications (
We look forward to receiving your bids.
