30th Winter Universiade

Lucerne (Switzerland), 2021


The 30th Winter Universiade 2021 will take place in Central Switzerland. The Lucerne 2021 Winter Universiade will not take place as planned from January 21 to 31, 2021. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the International University Sports Federation FISU, together with the Organising Committee and Swiss University Sports, has decided to stop preparations for the event to be held in January 2021 and to examine in the coming weeks a possible postponement of the event to a later date.

The Universiade is the largest multi-sport winter event in the world after the Winter Olympics. Universiades combine high-level competitive sport with educational aspects and cultural events. University and polytechnic students between the ages of 17 and 25 are eligible to enter.
